Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho said Friday that Gareth Bale will “probably” play against West Ham in the Premier League on Sunday, in what would be his first Spurs appearance after rejoining the club on loan from Real Madrid.
The Wales international has spent the past two weeks training after a knee injury delayed his return to the Spurs side after seven years in Spain.
“Of course he wants to play,” Mourinho said. “He wanted to play since the day he arrived, but it was not possible.
“I am not going to tell you if he is going to play. What I can tell you is that he is working very well, he is working in a way he was not able to do for a long time.
