Gareth Bale's agent says Jose Mourinho has to answer for issues at Tottenham and reveals why star first joined Spurs

GARETH BALE's agent says Jose Mourinho has to answer for the Welsh superstar’s issues at Spurs.

Bale has made just two Prem starts since arriving at the end of the summer transfer window.

Mourinho appeared to be questioning Bale’s dedication when he publicly criticised a social media post about a training session before the FA Cup defeat at Everton for which the Welshman was left out.

The 31-year-old was back to make an appearance off the bench in the weekend loss at Manchester City.

But it seems unlikely he will extend his loan spell beyond the end of the season.

And speaking at the FT Business of Football Summit, Jonathan Barnett threw a question about Bale’s struggles back in the direction of the Spurs boss.

Asked why Bale was having a tough time, Barnett said: "He’s towards the end of his career.

“But you have to ask Mourinho that.”

He added: “When Gareth was a young player, he knew where he wanted to be and that he had the talent.

“The first  thing we did was to find club that would give him best opportunity to progress his career.

“We chose Tottenham because the way to the first team was good, the coaching was good.

“And we turned down two offers for more money from other clubs. 

“We spoke to him and parents who understood and listened to us and he finished up in Real Madrid.

“He’s won more trophies  abroad than any other British player in history. He has had a very good lifestyle. That’s what happened to him.”
