Jose Mourinho claims Gareth Bale fitness post on Instagram was 'totally wrong'

Jose Mourinho has commented on an ill-timed Instagram post from Gareth Bale, though revealed the Welshman will be in Tottenham's squad to face Manchester City if he declares himself fit.

Bale's loan return to Spurs has been a disappointment so far, scoring just four times in all competitions, and he has made most of his appearances in cup matches.

He was expected to be involved in some capacity during the FA Cup defeat to Everton on Wednesday, but was left out of the squad. Bale and his entourage had posted a picture on Instagram with the caption 'Good session today', hinting at his availability, but Mourinho has now addressed the confusion caused.
