Tottenham manager Jose Mourinho loves controversies and he is stirring yet another one having declared that he is eagerly waiting to see how Real Madrid would react after Gareth Bale scored the winner in Sunday’s 2-1 victory against Brighton.
Sunday’s effort was Bale’s first goal since returning to the Premier League after being frustrated out from Real Madrid.
Bale left Spurs to join Real Madrid seven years ago but returned to the north London club on a season-long loan in September.
The Wales international won four Champions League titles and La Liga twice with Real, but divided opinion in Spain because of a perceived lack of commitment and poor injury record.
“I am pleased for him because he deserved the goal. When I have five minutes I am going to Safari to look at Madrid’s website to see what they say,” Mourinho said after the game.
“He knows we care about him and we know he cares about us, the team and the club, Spurs. He’s the perfect fit, he’s very calm, very intelligent, he has good feelings.”
Spurs will be hoping for more goals from Bale as they go on to face Bulgaria’s Ludogorets in the Europa League on Thursday before a Premier League clash against West Brom three days later.
