Mourinho praises Gareth Bale after FA Cup win

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho has revealed that he was pleased with Gareth Bale's fitness and performance as the Wales winger sparked a 4-1 comeback win at Wycombe last night.

Asked for his assessment of Bale's display after he declared himself fit and scored the equalizer, Mourinho said: 'It was good. 

'Some good movement. Some one against ones, beating people, attacking people, creating chances. Of course, scoring a goal.

'Apart from that, I never felt he couldn't play the 90 minutes. I never felt that I needed to change him and that is good.

'Of course, the Championship [Wycombe's division] is a good, competitive level and the aggression is high and the intensity is good. So I'm happy.'

Bale completed a full match for the first time since rejoining Spurs in September, having suffered from knee and calf injuries and a series of minor issues. 

The on-loan Real Madrid outcast has only appeared four times in the Premier League this season, playing more than 45 minutes just once in the top flight.
