Spurs’ slow start to the internal campaign appears to have lagged behind them with the victory over Southampton.

Mourinho has claimed that Zidane was happy to get rid of Garet Bale from Real Madrid

Daniel Levy’s double swoop to sign Sergio Reguilon and Gareth Bale went well with Tottenham supporters and Jose Mourinho. The coach has claimed that although he believed Zinedine Zidane was happy to get rid of the Wales International. Spurs’ slow start to the internal campaign appears to have lagged behind them with the victory over Southampton. However, they will be without Bale for just under a month as he continues to struggle with a pre-existing knee injury. “I have not spoken with Zidane, but I think he should be happy with Bale’s departure. So I am pleased that he is here,” Mourinho explained. “Gareth is happy to be here with us, and hopefully, at the end of the season, we are all happy, and he can stay with us.

“He is happy, and happiness is essential in life and in football. Although it will take a while for us to see him, with the doctors we have here when he is ready. I think he will be the player we all know he is”. Reguilon was not included in the traveling squad to face Shkendija in the third qualifying round of the Europa League on Thursday. With the former Real Madrid coach being cautious about the left-back’s rush into action so soon after an ankle injury. “He hasn’t trained with us yet, we knew he wouldn’t be here for this game. But he’s also not registered,” added Mourinho.
