Football: Bale is no longer the same footballer

09.10 am: coach JoséMourinho by Tottenham Hotspur gives Gareth Bale time to sharpen his shape. The Wales attacker returns to the English club after seven years with Real Madrid on a rental basis, but has not been given much time. He works hard, hasnt missed a minute of the workouts and is finally injury-free, but 90 minutes to go full is still too much to ask. He improves and hopefully he will take a higher level, said the coach leading up to the Premier League match against Brighton & Hove Albion.

The Portuguese did indeed live up to the expectations of his acquisition, which at the time swirled along the flanks and scored frequently. The lightning-fast Bale earned a transfer to Real Madrid and was equally the most expensive player in the world. Seven years is a long time, so Gareth is no longer the same footballer. Not better or worse, but different. Players change over the years; they try to discover other qualities and responsibilities that fit into the tactical system of their teams, says Mourinho.
