Mourinho: ‘Bale had psychological scars’

London, Mar 8 (EFE) .- José Mourinho, Tottenham Hotspur coach, explained Gareth Bale’s current form and why it took him so long to reach this level, claiming that the Welshman had “psychological scars.”

Bale has doubled twice in his last three games and is at his best since joining the London squad, already a regular starter.

“It is not that we have challenged him or anything. We have only supported him. I found psychological scars in him. When you are a couple of seasons with many injuries, the important thing is not only the muscle scars, but also the psychological ones, which bring fear and instability “, said the Portuguese technician to the BBC chain.

“There is a moment when you are working well and in which everyone around you is supporting you to the maximum. At that moment the psychological barrier is broken. And he has done it. It was him, not us. We only supported him. “added Mourinho.

Bale was the author of two of the four goals against Crystal Palace in Sunday’s clash. The Welshman, on loan from Real Madrid until the end of the season, has played 22 games with Tottenham and scored 10 goals, of which five have come in the Premier League, three in the Europa League, two in the FA Cup and one in the League Cup.
