Jose Mourinho responds to question on new Kane and Bale partnership


Jose Mourinho had plenty of positive words to say about Tottenham’s attacking players last night after the club demolished Crystal Palace 4-1 in North London.

Harry Kane and Gareth Bale each grabbed a brace in the match, with Kane also assisting both of the Welshman’s goals.

However, Heung-min Son also grabbed an assist and Lucas Moura was extremely impressive with his build-up play and high pressure all night.

Even Erik Lamela came off the bench and played an important role in Kane’s second and Tottenham’s fourth.

Mourinho paid testament to the array of talented attacking stars that Spurs currently have on the books, with Dele Alli, Tanguy Ndombele and Steven Bergwijn not even coming off the bench.

Last night made it three wins on the bounce in the Premier League for Tottenham with Arsenal up next in the North London Derby next week.

In his post-match press conference, Mourinho was asked about the now flourishing partnership between Kane and Bale.

Jose said (Football London): “For me, it’s more than their partnership.

“We have very good attacking players and they allow me to do what I did today, for example, which was to have a Dele Alli who played really well against Fulham to leave him out and play Lucas this time.

“Sonny, Gareth, Kane and then Lamela comes and comes well. Bergwijn didn’t even come and Tanguy stayed on the bench. We are a team with a lot of talent in these areas.

“This Gareth is an extra for us. This Gareth didn’t start the season. This Gareth is playing this way for a couple of months and of course, the quality is amazing. He’s a fantastic player.

“We have very good attacking players and when the team is confident and when the team is in a positive moment, playing with happiness with good self-esteem, we have lots of qualities. Of course, it’s a privilege to have such a very good group of players.”
