Jose Mourinho mocks Real Madrid after Gareth Bale’s exploits at Tottenham


Jose Mourinho couldn’t help but aim for a dig at his former club Real Madrid after Gareth Bale came off the bench to score in Tottenham’s win over Brighton.Welsh star Bale – on loan from Real Madrid – scored in the 73rd minute to lead Spurs to a 2-1 victory and propel Mourinho’s side to second in the Premier League.

The 31-year-old’s lead winner came more than seven years after his last goal for Tottenham.

During that time, he won countless honors for Real before falling out with Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane in recent seasons.

And Mourinho saw fit to make a fun jibe on Bale’s fractured relationship with Real after the win over the Seagulls.

Mourinho targeted Real Madrid dig after Bale’s goal

“When I have five minutes, I go to Safari (Internet) on the Real Madrid site to see what they are saying,” said the Spurs boss.

“I’m so happy for him. Nice boy, full of commitment, loves the club and we love him here.

Meanwhile, Mourinho was unhappy with VAR as referee Graham Scott and video manager Jon Moss were embroiled in controversies involving two of three goals and a penalty appeal.

Mourinho said: “I’d rather stay away [from VAR]. The referee should probably go to the press conference and explain.

“He had time to get to the screen so that only he could explain why it’s a goal. He’s a good referee and a good guy, only he can explain this decision. My point of view doesn’t matter.

“In 2004, when I came to England, there were some games where the best teams knew there were three points – no more. Now it’s the best league in the world, not just because of the top six, for each team.

“The Premier League, everyone is close. If we lose two points, we can be seventh, eighth, ninth. The Premier League is magnificent. ”
