Mourinho Sends Message To Out-Of-Favour Bale

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho has sent a message to Gareth Bale, who has barley featured in the Premier League this season.

The Welshman has not enjoyed the fairytale return to North London after only making five appearances in the league this season.

With Harry Kane set for a spell on the sidelines, Mourinho has now urged the on-loan Real Madrid winger step up and make an impact.

"Yes, I hope so. He didn't play much [against Liverpool], but played 90 minutes in the cup and that, for him, is a big impact so it's impossible to be fresh to play a lot.

"It's a crucial moment for him, he's feeling better and better.

"When you lose a player of Harry's quality and dimension, the other guys have to step up. Hopefully he [Bale] can help us.

"Harry Kane is Harry Kane. There are players in some teams that are not replaceable.

"One thing is to have, like last season, three or four attacking players all injured at the same time, and another thing is to have Harry Kane.

"Of course, we have Vinicius, Bergwijn, Lucas [Moura], Lamela and Gareth Bale so it's a different situation. We have attacking players."

Check out where Bale ranks among the highest-paid players in England:
