Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale has spoken about the recent appointment of Jose Mourinho as the Tottenham Hotspur manager for the first time.
Jose Mourinho became the new Tottenham Hotspur manager at the end of November after long-term manager Mauricio Pochettino was sacked for the poor start to the season.
Pochettino spent over five years at Spurs and also led them to the Champions League final at the end of the last campaign in a miraculous manner following their second half, second leg recovery against Dutch champions Ajax Amsterdam in the semifinals.
Welshman Gareth Bale has been linked with a return to Spurs in recent days with some reports claiming that Mourinho has given club chairman Daniel Levy the go ahead to pursue a deal for him.

Bale was a Tottenham Hotspur player until the summer of 2013 when he left the North London club for Spanish La Liga outfit Real Madrid in a then world-record fee of £85.3m.
In a chat with BT Sports, Gareth Bale vetoed the appointment of Mourinho as the Spurs manager before adding that the Portuguese tactician will guarantee his former club trophies.
