Darren Bent has talked about Bent who is playing for Tottenham on loan from Real Madrid.

left Madrid after a long struggle between him and the club. Now he has joined


on a loan transfer but has not played in as many games as the fans expected and


thinks that he is not the player he was before.

Here is what Bent told BT Sport about Bale:

“It’s a gradual process but at the same time it’s a year loan, For me, the question you’ve got to ask is how long is Jose Mourinho prepared to give him before he goes ‘this is not working’.

“All the talk has been about [Heung-min] Son and [Harry] Kane being superb. But when they get Bale back, when Bale gets back to himself, Bale this and Bale that. But right now he’s nowhere near the Bale we can remember.

“He’s not played consistently for about three years and he’s had big injuries as well. That Bale may never come back.”

Bent admits Tottenham will already be thinking about their long-term plan for Bale. And he reckons Spurs may decide that the winger is simply not worth the salary he commands.

“Do you think there’s a point in the season where he could become a distraction? They have to make a decision,

 “It’s a year loan and if it continues like this what do Spurs do? Send him back to M “So for me how long are they going to give him? And how long are the fans going to give him before they go ‘listen, we can’t keep waiting on him to come back’. [Steven] Bergwijn needs to be playing and Lucas Moura needs to be playing.

“It’s kind of a strange one, but at the minute the signs don’t look great.”
