Bale is not the player Jose needs, says Redknapp

Mon 07 December 2020 | 18:20

Bale has played just 116 minutes of Premier League football so far in four appearances.

Gareth Bale

was once the most expensive player in the world but he has been frozen in Real Madrid for the past 2 years. He joined

Tottenham Hotspur

with a one-year loan deal. Fans were very exciting and expected to see the same Bale they saw before he joined the Spanish Giant.

However,

Jose Mourinho

has not found a starting role for the Welsh winger yet. He had his time as a starter and also a substitute but he never showed that he is the same player. Jaime Redknapp has spoken about Bale’s current situation.

The former Spurs midfielder told Sky Sports:

“I'm almost undermining an incredible player, one of the best players I've ever seen live, Gareth Bale. The things he's done for Real Madrid and for Tottenham. There was a spell when he was unplayable.

"Right now, Jose thinks he's not the player he needs in this team.

“This team has to work to a man, and Gareth might just upset that balance and not quite do those hard yards if you like.

“That feels a bit unfair on him because he's probably watching now thinking 'how am I going to get in this team? If I am going to get in, the only way I can do it, is by working hard and showing in training that when I come on, I make an impact.'

“Make no mistake, Gareth Bale will have a role and he will score a couple of wonderful goals here before the end of the season, but I can't imagine he's too happy about sitting on the bench.

“I can't imagine a player of his stature can be enjoying not being involved and not even coming on. We've all got egos as players.”
