With Gareth Bale having featured only 12 times under Jose Mourinho at Tottenham Hotspur so far this season, how he feels amid his lack of playing time has now reportedly been revealed.
The Welshman has made just four appearances in the Premier League since his return to Spurs on loan, and it was claimed that some of the club's first-team stars have been slightly surprised with Mourinho's handling of Bale.
The Portuguese tactician, however, recently suggested there will be more minutes for the 31-year-old, along with a reminder of the injury and fitness issues the winger has had since coming back to England.
Despite his lack of playing time, though, Bale is still happy at the north London outfit, and has been a vocal leader on the training ground, according to The Athletic.

The on-loan Real Madrid man has found the back of the net on three occasions in the 623 minutes he has played for Spurs this season, and has started just once in the league.
It remains to be seen if Bale will return to Madrid to play for Los Blancos again, or if the 13-time UEFA Champions League winners will look to move him on permanently.
Mourinho appears to be in constant dialogue with the Southampton youth product, with the Portuguese tactician recently asking the Wales talisman if he wants to stay at Spurs and play, or return to Spain and not play.
