    I think it was widely reported we had an option to extend for a second year, obviously depending on how it all goes.

    “One of the first questions in my first conversation with Gareth was ‘what’s your favourite position?’,” said Mourinho. “I wanted to start from there and he answered me the question.

    “Does that mean he will always be used in that position? No. Because the most important thing is the team and he will play where the team needs him to play, but he was very clear by saying his favourite position is on the right. It’s not as a No.10, it’s not as a striker, it’s not any more on the left side like he did in the first years of his career at Southampton and Tottenham. His favourite position now is on the right side.

    “So, that was a very good starting point of his development here. When he reaches his continuity and when he reaches his normal intensity and dynamic, I think he can be the player people saw being decisive when he went to Real Madrid, in a very similar position. Real Madrid was basically, Bale, Benzema, Ronaldo, with Bale playing fundamentally from the right and that’s the position he prefers.”

    The right hand side has been his best position since the last couple of seasons at Spurs so it's really no surprise. Some might be disappointed as they like him on the left but he's a lot more dangerous and effective from the right.

    I hate to tell you all that I’ve ruined it for him, and for all of us, by putting him in my fantasy team.

    And he'll be 33 then - just in time for a big China payday.
    Works for everyone.

    I think he will retire after 3 seasons with us and having won the CL and PL with us

    Was it 23 or something? So he should hit form in time to drag us out of the relegation dogfight.

    Oh how I wish he'd just buried that, as soon as he missed I knew we'd draw.

    Our game on the 29th of october is my birthday and exactly 10 years from the inter match. I was watching in a bar in New York where we had gone for birthday celebrations.

    Hope he repeats the feat.
