Gareth Bale never had a chance to prove himself under former boss Jose Mourinho in his return to Tottenham, according to his agent Jonathan Barnett.
Bale has scored four times in the two games since Mourinho’s sacking as Tottenham head coach, including a hat-trick against relegated Sheffield United last week.
The Wales international is on loan from LaLiga giants Real Madrid, with his future beyond 2020-21 uncertain.
Barnett believes his client may have been in fine form all along but was denied a chance to show it before interim coach Ryan Mason took the reins.
“Given the opportunity, given the right way to play him, you may have found that he was always at his best,” Barnett told Sky Sports News.
“He just didn’t have the opportunity to prove it or the way to prove it.”
