Gareth Bale is backing Jose Mourinho to enjoy a stellar second season in charge at Manchester United.

The Portuguese coach was brought in as Louis van Gaal’s permanent successor last summer and he led the Red Devils to EFL Cup and Europa League glory as they secured a return to the Champions League for this season.

Bale has been heavily linked with a possible move to Manchester United this summer amid speculation about his situation at Real Madrid.

There has not been any official announcement about those reports, however, and it seems as if Bale is going to stay put for the time being, despite Mourinho admitting that he’s a keen admirer of the forward.

But the Welshman is clearly still keeping a close eye on goings on at Manchester United and is tipping them to enjoy a successful second season under the Portuguese coach.

Bale is quoted as saying by the Daily Telegraph: “I’m sure they’ll do fantastic this season.

“I think it [the fear factor] is getting there. Obviously I think by bringing Mourinho in, it’s kind of boosted the club, by winning a few trophies last year.

“It did them great, and I think they’re getting back to where they belong.”

Manchester United are currently preparing for their Premier League opener against West Ham United at Old Trafford on Sunday afternoon.

Bale played against the Red Devils in Real Madrid’s 2-1 Uefa Super Cup win over Manchester United on Tuesday night.
