Spurs’ hat-trick hero Gareth Bale has taken a dig at sacked Jose Mourinho, by revealing that his side are now finally trying to play ‘the Tottenham way’.
Tottenham defeated Sheffield United 4-0 on Sunday at White Hart Lane on Sunday, with the Wales international scoring three time and Son Heung-min added a superb fourth.
The Welshman said: “The fact that we’re more on the front foot.
“We’ve been working on that now for the last few weeks.
“It’s obviously not going to happen overnight but I feel we’re taking a step in the right direction and we’re playing football the Tottenham way.”
He added that: “It was a great performance from the first whistle.
“We got the ball, got control of it and played some good football.
“Nice to get a hat-trick but more importantly three points for the team, and we move on to the next one.
“I just needed to get a run of games, and I’m doing that now. I’m happy, and when I’m happy I normally play well.”
