Specialist Jamie O’Hara says he has become “tired” of Gareth Bale’s loan to Tottenham, adding that his reunion “just needs to come to an end.”
Ball, who left Spurs for Real Madrid in 2013, has become a trophy-laden figure for Los Blancos. However, his relationship with the club turned sour and he took the opportunity to return to North London. The Welshman moved in September, enthusiastic about the quality he could bring.
However, with less than a period of form before the international break, the loan move has largely failed.
Bale returned with injury issues and it took him several months to get back into shape. However, talking about disagreements between him and the manager Jose mourinho accompanied the frustration of his lack of minutes.
Talk on talkSPORTO’Hara added, naming two “shocking” performances by the winger that stood out for him.
“Everyone has had enough of the Gareth Bale saga,” said the specialist. “The fans, the players, the media, everyone has just had enough.
“He came in, there were people standing out of the ground, it was like the return of the messiah.
“He was out of shape for three months, got in shape, had a few decent games, started playing well and then disappeared in the two biggest games of the season against Arsenal and Dinamo Zagreb,” two shocking performances.
Spurs lost 2-1 to Arsenal in the North London derby last month, with Bale playing 57 minutes.
In shock at the Europa League exit at Dinamo, the forward played for an hour but struggled to affect proceedings.
More recently, however, attention has turned to Bale’s plan after this season. His agent, Jonathan Barnett, insisted in September that a second loan could be considered.
However, Bale himself insisted he was focusing on getting back into shape to help Wales at the delayed European Championships this summer, which O’Hara questioned.
O’Hara sick of Bale, Spurs reunion
“Then he comes out and says he just wanted to be fit for the Euros,” added O’Hara.
“That’s why he came to Spurs, he wants to return to Real Madrid. Everyone has just had enough.
“You can see Mourinho has had enough. He didn’t bother playing him against Aston Villa, he brought him for two minutes against Newcastle.
“This whole situation just has to end.”
Spurs return to action on Sunday against Manchester United in north London.
