Portuguese coach Jose Mourinho, Tottenham Hotspur coach, was asked about the level of Welshman Gareth Bale, and he said, “If I answer after losing the team, I will oppress him.” But what the Portuguese coach did not explicitly say in the British media: “Bill disappointed London.”
And Mourinho continued – after losing to Burnley yesterday with a clean goal – “When we lose a match the team loses and not because of one player or his poor performance, I think it is unfair to answer a question about a player, especially in these circumstances.”
Mourinho had hoped that Bill could bridge the absence of injured Harry Kane, but what happened with the Welsh star in Real Madrid he repeated with the London team, and he was not as reliable.
It is noteworthy that Bill – loaned by the royal – is receiving 5 and a half million euros from Tottenham this season, and after a simple calculation, Bill will play 15 games, and it costs the team about 7 thousand euros for every minute of play, and has so far scored 4 goals, i.e. the cost of each goal About 1 million 360 thousand euros, and the cost of each match he played is about 552 thousand euros.
And all of this comes and the team is unduly retreating in terms of performance and results, after a strong start that nominated it to compete for the Premier League title; Tottenham lost the last two games, and fell to sixth place in the league standings with 33 points, 11 points behind Manchester City, which also has a postponed match.
