Gareth Bale has finally broken his silence following Tottenham Hotspur’s Carabao Cup final defeat to Manchester City.
The Welshman was named by Ryan Mason as a substitute for the Wembley showpiece on Sunday with the 29-year-old instead opting for a front three of Heung-min Son, Harry Kane and Lucas Moura.
The Real Madrid loanee came onto the pitch in the 67th minute in place of Moura but was unable to have any impact on the match with Pep Guardiola’s side having dominated the encounter.
Bale had not posted anything on social media since Sunday’s defeat until he reflected on the 1-0 loss yesterday when he admitted it was difficult to take, but is now focused on a strong finish for the remainder of the season.

There was mass excitement when it was revealed that Bale would be returning to the club in the summer, however, his second spell in North London has been an anti-climax after struggling with fitness and failing to hold down a regular place in the starting eleven under Jose Mourinho.
