Tottenham boss, Jose Mourinho, has admitted a fresh injury setback for on-loan Real Madrid attacker Gareth Bale.
The Wales international has struggled for fitness ever since returning to north London from Real Madrid back in the summer transfer window. And, now, he’s poised to miss ‘a few weeks’ of footballing action.
For Spurs, Fulham are up next on Wednesday night.
And, speaking ahead of that match, Mourinho confirmed Bale would miss ‘a few weeks’ of action – with Lucas Moura and Carlos Vinicius also sidelined at present.
“I wouldn’t say it’s serious but I’d say a few weeks,” he said.
“I don’t expect him to be fit for Fulham and also I have my doubts that Lucas Moura and Vinicius can be fit for Fulham.”
As well as Fulham, Bale now faces missing matches against Leeds, Brentford in the Carabao Cup semi-final and the FA Cup tie at Marine on January 10.
