Next Sunday Tottenham, in which the Colombian Dávinson Sánchez acts, will face West Ham for the Premier League. The match is scheduled for 7:00 am, Colombian time.
The Welshman Gareth Bale has just scored against Wolfsberg for the Europa League and this restored Mourinho’s confidence. The coach said he replaced him with Erik Lamela in the 65th minute to recover for the weekend’s game.
Portuguese José Mourinho, Tottenham Hotspur coach, has regained confidence in Gareth Bale after the Welsh footballer scored a goal and provided an assist in the win over Wolfsberg in the Europa League (1-4).
The Welshman served the first goal of the match to his teammate Heung-min Son and then scored a goal to put his team on track for the second round of the European competition.
“One of the reasons why we took him off in the 65th minute is so that he would be available for the next game because one thing that can affect him is the accumulation of minutes,” Mourinho said at a press conference.
“By taking him away at that moment we take minutes off his legs and as the game is on Sunday at 12:00, I think he will be able to play,” added the Tottenham Hotspur coach.
“We will have to wait. He is that kind of player who, from his experience, what he feels is very important, as with Harry Kane. We have to trust these players and their knowledge of how their body is.”
