Bale explained that he has spoken to manager Mourinho as he awaits his return to the field after suffering an injury.
"He's spoken to me about a few positions that he would like me to play and obviously I'm happy with that," Bale, 31, said
"He was a big reason for me coming back here, he's a household name and a winner. He's the perfect fit for Tottenham. We need to win trophies and he knows how to do that better than anyone.
"I know every Tottenham fan is desperate for a trophy and we'll be trying as hard as possible in every competition to do that."
He also ensured that he has learned a lot on and off the pitch after spending seven years in Madrid but will still be able to bring plenty of excitement for the Tottenham faithful.
"I'm a mature person now, I have grown up. I have had to when living abroad – not going to be those 90 yard runs down the wing all game. I understand the game more but I still have a lot to offer. I have my pace."
