Christian Eriksen makes Tottenham exit admission as Jose Mourinho teases Gareth Bale selection
Here’s all the news from around the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium over the past 24 hours, as reported by Football.london.
Jose Mourinho drops Gareth Bale decision hint ahead of West Ham game
Jose Mourinho has spoken about the potential role Gareth Bale can play against West Ham United on Sunday.
Bale, 31, returned to Tottenham on loan from Real Madrid and has spent the international break training with his new team.
He has been recovering from a knee injury, and Mourinho was asked whether Bale will be available for selection on Sunday.
“The team is the most important thing, Gary….Gareth is here to help the team but at the same time we care about him, we care about the body,” he told Sky Sports News. “The decisions we are going to make will be for the good of the team but also for his own good.
“It is very, very important he has a happy season with us and I think at this moment in his career that is very, very important.”
Christian Eriksen names the biggest difference at Inter Milan after leaving Tottenham
Christian Eriksen believes his limited game time with Inter Milan has been the biggest adjustment as he adapts to live away from Tottenham.
The Danish midfielder joined Spurs from Ajax in 2013 and became a fan favourite during his time in North London.
When Eriksen was sold to Inter earlier this year he was in the final months of his Spurs deal, and it was hailed as a good move for all parties.
Speaking after Denmark’s 1-0 win against England, during which Eriksen converted the winning penalty, he confirmed his lack of playing time at Inter is the biggest difference between his current and former club.
“I’m happy to come back every time because I play here and I’m happy. Of course, as everyone knows, many things have changed,” he explained.
“I don’t play as much as I did at Tottenham, but nothing has changed. I’m excited when I come to the national team, no matter which club I play in.”
