Jamie Redknapp told Super Sunday on Sky Sports that ‘everyone kept telling’ him that Tottenham forward Gareth Bale ‘cannot play anymore’.
But the former Spurs midfielder think that was proven wrong at the weekend when he ‘made an impact’ at the London Stadium.
Whilst Bale didn’t get on the scoresheet, he did provide an assist and brought some serious energy to Tottenham’s attacking third.
Redknapp now feels that he expects Bale to be given a ‘run of games’ by Jose Mourinho.
“I thought he cannot play anymore,” said Redknapp. “Everyone kept telling me, he cannot play anymore, Gareth Bale. I think he has shown us that he can in the second half.
“I think Gareth Bale made an impact. I am looking forward to a run of games for him.”
Tottenham are in Europa League action tomorrow where they just have to avoid a complete and utter capitulation to progress.
Bale has started Europa League games this season and he will be expected to start on Wednesday.
It’s just a case of whether Mourinho will keep him in the starting XI for their Premier League clash against Burnley on Sunday.
