- Jose Mourinho has explained that Gareth Bale is getting better for Tottenham
- The Welshman has not been superb since he returned to the Premier League
- Bale is expected to be leading Tottenham's attack now that Kane is injured
Jose Mourinho who is the gaffer of Premier League giants Tottenham has urged Gareth Bale to step up his game for Spurs now that captain and main striker Harry Kane is injured.
The England international suffered the injury in an incident with Thiago and Jordan Hernderson while playing for Spurs in their defeat against Liverpool.
Since rejoining Tottenham on a loan deal from Spanish champions Real Madrid, Gareth Bale has not been impressive for Spurs and has even started only one game in the Premier League.
But according to the report on Sky Sports, Jose Mourinho explained that Gareth Bale is getting better this term and Harry's Kane injury would give him the chance to shine.
"Yes, I hope so. He didn't play much against Liverpool, but played 90 minutes in the cup and that, for him, is a big impact so it's impossible to be fresh to play a lot.
"It's a crucial moment for him, he's feeling better and better.
"When you lose a player of Harry's quality and dimension, the other guys have to step up. Hopefully he Bale can help us.
"Harry Kane is Harry Kane. There are players in some teams that are not replaceable.''
Meanwhile, Tottenham are currently occupying sixth position on the Premier League table and they will be facing Brighton on Sunday, January 31, in their next game.
Earlier, Legit.ng had reported how England international Danny Ings who currently plays for Premier League side Southampton emerged as main target for Jose Mourinho who is the handler of Tottenham.
Presently, the 28-year-old forward has refused to sign a new deal at Southampton as he wants to leave the side to where he can play Champions League football.
According to the report, Danny Ings' current contract at Premier League side Southampton will expire in the next 18 months and the club's chiefs have been trying their best to make the player extend his stay.
The report added that Tottenham made inquiry about Danny Ings last year September, but Southampton refused to do any business with Spurs.
