- Jose Mourinho believes that Gareth Bale's recent form was something he achieved by himself
- The Tottenham winger has been in remarkable form in his last six matches bagging the same number of goals and assists
- The 31-year-old scored a brace in Spurs 4-1 victory over Crystal Palace in a Premier League game
Jose Mourinho has claimed that Gareth Bale's resurgence for Tottenham in recent weeks is a result of a broken psychological barrier, Daily Mail.
The Welshman has been struggling to hit top form since his loan move from Real Madrid during the summer transfer window.
However, the 31-year-old was on target twice in the 4-1 derby win over Crystal Palace at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium.
Bale has scored and provided six assists in his last six matches in all competitions to help Spurs put together a four-game winning streak.
The Portuguese gaffer revealed that bale has been psychologically scarred with several injury problems since his spell with Madrid but has got his mojo back.
Mourinho was quoted by Mail:
"It is not that we have challenged him or anything." We have only supported him.
"I found psychological scars in him. When you are a couple of seasons with many injuries, the important thing is not only the muscular scars, but also the psychological ones, which bring fear and instability.
"There is a moment when you are working well and when everyone around you is supporting you to the maximum. At that moment the psychological barrier is broken.
"And he has done it. It was him, not us."
Meanwhile, Legit.ng had earlier reported that Tottenham Hotspur have taken a step ahead in their hopes of securing Champions League football after securing a 4-1 comfortable win over London rivals, Crystal Palace, on Sunday night, March 7.
Spurs were out in search of a third successive league win having won two of their previous fixtures including their 1-0 win over Fulham in midweek.
The Jose Mourinho-tutored side wasted no time to show intent to put the game to bed as they were dominant from the blow of the whistle.
