Watch: Mourinho insists Bale playing according to Spurs plan 'nothing to prove to me'

Tottenham boss Jose Mourinho says Gareth Bale has nothing to prove to him.

Mourinho says he has plans to play Bale more as he gets fitter, insisting his appearances have been made according to a plan as his body adjusts to playing more games than he has over the last two years with Real Madrid.

Ahead of their Europa League clash with Wolfsberger, Mourinho also pointed out the heavy schedule his players are facing through March. Spurs meet the Austrians in the second-leg of round of 32 on Thursday night.
