Gareth Bale returned to Tottenham at the start of this season to much fanfare.
After years of underachievement, bringing one of the most decorated footballers of our time back was seen as a major transfer coup for Spurs.
The Welshman had struggled to see playing time at Madrid, but we all thought it had to be because Zinedine Zidane disliked him.
He was given time to get up to speed at Spurs, yet Bale has flattered to deceive when he has played.
In the absence of Harry Kane, Jose Mourinho started him in Tottenham’s game against Brighton and he was ineffective.
He has probably blown his chance to earn a permanent transfer back to Tottenham. However, Spurs’ legend, Graham Roberts, thinks he should be getting playing time at the club.
Having watched as Mourinho finished his substitutions against West Brom without calling on the Welshman, he wondered on Twitter why Bale isn’t being used.
He tweeted: “Why is mourinho not giving bale 25 mins now he’s not going to get fit with 10 mins”
One follower answered him: “Doesn’t trust him Graham”
To which Graham responded: “He didn’t trust de bruyne, and salah at chelski look at them teams gave them a chance”
