Bale Speaks After Mourinho Sacking

Gareth Bale has revealed what he believes needs to change at Tottenham Hotspur following Jose Mourinho's shock sacking earlier this week.

Mourinho Linked With Shock Job

The Portuguese tactician was relieved of his duties on Monday morning following a run of poor results and reports of in-fighting in the Spurs camp.

Mourinho, famous for his defensive approach to football, was said to have annoyed a few senior players with his philosophy, with Bale seemingly one of those in disagreement with his tactics.

Speaking after Spurs' 2-1 Premier League win over Southampton on Wednesday night, the Wales superstar was asked what he felt needed changing at the club going forward, to which the Real Madrid loanee responded by insisting the team should be more attacking.

"Maybe just to be on the front foot more. We want to attack," Bale answered, according to WalesOnline.

"We're a big team, we have great players and we need to attack more. We need to try and stay higher up the pitch and I think we did that today.

"They came at us. They pushed hard. We've only had a couple of days with the new manager to do a few things.

"It's going to take bit of time. There's a few things we need to improve but we controlled the game in the second half and deserved the victory. It was a very good team talk at half-time."

The Truth Behind Mourinho's Sacking Revealed?

The Lilywhites are now sixth in the league after 33 matches, although both Liverpool and Everton, who are just behind Spurs, have games in hand.
