Jose Mourinho has criticised Gareth Bale over his latest Instagram post.
Gareth Bale made an Instagram post in which he stated he was fit to play against Everton.

Bale’s return to his former club in the last summer window has not worked out very well for him.
He has just started two Premier League matches for the North London club.
“It was a contradiction between the post and the reality,” said Mourinho in a news conference.
“Since the beginning of the season in relationship to everything, I try to be very private and try to keep everything indoors, but I felt I needed to address the situation,” added Mourinho on Friday.
“The post was not even his responsibility, I don’t know. But the post was showing ‘training session great and I am ready’ and was totally wrong.”
“He had a scan, the scan didn’t show an injury but his feelings were still there and coaches, sports science and medical people, we can never go against feelings because the player’s feelings are much more important than all of us.
“So he was not ready for the game. It is as simple as that.”
