Premier League The Colombian lasted 90 minutes
Gareth Bale’s situation at Tottenham doesn’t appear to be much different to what he endured at Real Madrid.
Just as Zinedine Zidane didn’t, Jose Mourinho doesn’t rely on the Welshman, and he’s not giving him enough minutes on the pitch for the player to get back to his best.
Even centre-back Davinson Sanchez is enjoying a more prominent role than Bale, as he played 90 minutes on Sunday and did well.
Bale has scored just four goals this season, and he has been no more than a peripheral squad player for Mourinho. Almost all of his appearances have come from the bench.
Everything suggests that Bale will return to Real Madrid in June, though Zidane has no plans to use him in the Spanish capital either, and time appears to be proving the Frenchman’s stance, at least with Bale, right.
The Colombian defender, on the other hand, is taking forward steps under Mourinho, and the coach highly values his attitude and work rate.
