Gareth Bale is in the best shape of his second spell at Tottenham and has reached a complete synthesis between mind and body, free of concern over niggling injuries, claims José Mourinho.
The winger has struggled with fitness and shape since returning on loan from Real Madrid last summer but is finally approaching something far closer to peak form while beginning to exert the desired impact.
“He looks happier than ever,” said the manager according to The Guardian. “He looks confident.”
“The mental is always a consequence of the physical,” Mourinho said. “If a player feels great, if he is training at 100%, then his feelings will be very good. There are no psychological problems, no fears or barriers.”
“When you have little things [wrong physically] – and especially when you have a recent history of injuries – it’s normal [to have worries]. Physical things have consequences. But lately, Gareth is fine. It is just a question of how many minutes he can play, how many days he needs to recover between matches.”
