Mourinho tells Tottenham fans to expect different Bale from previous stint

Tottenham vs Brighton

Sunday’s late Premier League kick-off will see Tottenham host Brighton.

Neither side will head into the clash at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium in great form.

Spurs would fall to somewhat of a surprise 1-0 defeat against Antwerp in the Europa League on Thursday.

As for Brighton, they have picked up just one league win so far this campaign.

And though the Seagulls do play some nice football at times, their inability to keep clean sheets is really hampering them this term.

Mourinho on Bale

Tottenham will head into the clash knowing Graham Potter’s side boasting one of the best attacks in the league.

As a result, their plethora of attackers will no doubt be desperate to start on Sunday, including Gareth Bale, who is yet to get off the mark for his new club.

The Welshman is yet to receive a starting berth in league action this season, so perhaps he will finally be afforded one this weekend?

However, even if he is, Jose Mourinho has recently warned that Spurs fans shouldn’t expect the same Bale they saw tear up the English top-flight seven years ago:

“Seven years is a long, long, long gap. So which player in the world is the same as he was seven years ago? Sometimes they’re not better or worse, they’re just different players.

“For example you look to [Cristiano] Ronaldo and [Lionel] Messi, and compare them with seven years ago. They play in different areas, different positions. They transform their qualities to try and explore their qualities in other responsibilities in the tactical system of their teams. I think it happens with the majority of the players, so for sure he is a different player.”
