Tottenham defeat vs Antwerp Europa League clash proves Man Utd made correct call | Football | Sport

The 31-year-old’s arrival in north London was met with widespread cheer among Tottenham fans.

However, he’s been unable to make an impact so far as he looks to build up his match fitness.

The game against Antwerp was just his third appearance since signing in the summer, but Bale still clearly looked some way off his usual best.

He was hauled off at half-time after failing to have an affect on the game with Spurs losing 1-0.

Mourinho has already stated that Bale will need time to get up to full speed, but that’s not something Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has at United.
