Wales attacker Gareth Bale has not enjoyed a good return to Tottenham Hotspur to date.

The ex-Southampton player returned to the North London outfit on loan from Spanish champions Real Madrid at the start of the season and has spent the majority of his time at Tottenham Hotspur either on the substitutes’ bench or on the treatment table.

Tottenham Hotspur boss Jose Mourinho has left out the Wales national team star player out of his starting XI on several occasions even when he's fit. This time it's different though - at Real Madrid when he was left out he'd live it up on the golf course or in online gaming sites like these, but this time he is keeping his head down and working hard.

The Wales national team talisman won't be fit for the Carabao Cup last four tie between his Tottenham Hotspur side and English Championship team Brentford on Tuesday night due to a calf problem. Gareth Bale would still be determined to turn his career around for good in his second spell at Tottenham Hotspur.

Bale will miss the Carabao Cup semi-final clash with Brentford as a result of the calf injury picked up in the last round against another Championship outfit in Stoke City. The Wales player was forced off at half-time of the Carabao Cup quarterfinal tie with hosts Stoke City at the Britannia Stadium because of the injury.

Tottenham Hotspur were able to beat Stoke City 3-1 to advance into the semis where they would meet fellow London outfit Brentford for a place in the final of the competition.

Tottenham Hotspur manager Jose Mourinho gave an update on the calf injury sustained by Gareth Bale in one of his recent press conferences last week.

According to him, the Welshman will miss the next few weeks due to the calf problem. Apart from Gareth Bale, Tottenham Hotspur will also be without Argentine midfielder Giovanni Lo Celso who has a hamstring problem. Brentford are in good form after a run of 16 games without defeat ahead of the Carabao Cup last four match with Spurs.
