Gareth Bale News
Son’s right-foot curler in off the post completed a satisfying day for 29-year-old rookie manager Mason. It looks likely Bale will return to Madrid at the end of the season, although after Sunday’s display Spurs fans will be hoping he can extend his stay. Eight of Bale’s 14 Premier League appearances under Mourinho were as a substitute but he has started both of Mason’s games in charge, albeit surprisingly only on the bench in last week’s League Cup final defeat by Manchester City.
Bale is set to skipper Wales at the European Championship in June. Getting away on international duty with Wales, said Bale, came at just the right time. Wales begin their bid to qualify for a first World Cup since 1958 at top-ranked Belgium on Wednesday and then play Mexico in a friendly in Cardiff on Saturday.
