Mourinho admits to making mistakes with Alli, Bale

Tottenham Hotspur manager, Jose Mourinho, has admitted he has made “wrong decisions” with Gareth Bale and Dele Alli this season.

Bale and Alli have barely played under Mourinho this season, with both players struggling for form and fitness.

Mourinho has also been critical of the pair at times, leading to questions being asked of their respective futures, but the Spurs boss has suggested that he will be wiping the slate clean.

“Good players when they are fit and when they are ready and when they can [play] are always welcome, always welcome,” Mourinho told reporters after the 3-0 defeat to Manchester City.

“We coaches sometimes we can make wrong decisions, we all do, but not one of us is crazy.

“Not one of us says I don’t want this player to help me and the team when the player has the potential and the conditions he needs to do it.

“We miss Gio [Lo Celso] for a long, long time. We miss [Sergio] Reguilon for a few weeks. If we can have them back, if we can have Dele and Gareth fit and ready to play, it’s a big improvement in our squad.”
