José Mourinho claims Gareth Bale can rediscover his best form after returning to Tottenham.
For Spurs Bale was the most eye-catching arrival and may make his second West Ham home debut on Sunday.
According to The Guardian, Mourinho wants the 31-year-old to repeat the results that brought him to Real Madrid in 2013 for a then £85 million world record and suggested that Bale would be used mainly on the right.
“When he reaches his continuity and when he reaches his normal intensity and dynamic, I think he can be the player that people saw, being decisive when he went to Real Madrid in a very similar position,” Tottenham’s manager said.
“It’s great to listen from Sergio Reguilón, who shared the dressing room with him in Madrid, that Gareth looks a different guy,” Mourinho said.
“So if he’s happy with us then he goes home and he can share that happiness with family; it’s the best thing that can happen to him. But he needs his football and he needs to feel a top player again and that’s why I’m saying all the decisions we make with him will be thinking first about the team but never forgetting what is best for him.”
