Dimitar Berbatov insists Tottenham should send Gareth Bale back to Real Madrid at the end of his loan should his form not improve.

The Welsh forward has failed to make an impact at the Tottenham Hotspur Stadium after re-joining the club seven years after his world-record move to the Bernabeu.

But Berbatov has been underwhelmed by Bale’s impact, with just three goals in 12 appearances across all competitions, and insists it will be an “easy decision” for Jose Mourinho to send him back at the conclusion of his loan unless his form picks up.

“I was expecting a lot of him coming to Spurs, to shake things up and for him, Son and Kane to make it a trio up front that can rival the Liverpool attacking trio, for example,” Berbatov told Stats Perform News.

“For the moment it is 100 per cent not working. Hopefully he can get back to 100 per cent and start playing. If not, in the end, it is an easy decision – he can go back to Madrid.

“Whatever the reason [for his lack of games], Gareth Bale is injury-free now because he’s on the bench for the team, but he’s not playing from the first minute so it means that obviously he’s not producing the right level of football Jose Mourinho wants from him, which is a shame because I like him a lot.”

Bale’s next opportunity to impress Mourinho is likely to come on Monday in the FA Cup fourth round tie at Wycombe Wanderers.
