Zinedine Zidane spoke about his decision to dismiss James Rodriguez and Gareth Bale in the final match of the Spanish La Liga against Leganes.
Real Madrid have managed to lock in the Spanish La Liga title this season since the victory over Villarreal at the 37th Jornada last week.
With this fact, logically the coach will provide the opportunity to play to those who rarely appear this season in the last match against Leganes, Monday morning WIB (20/07). Because the end result of the match does not mean anything in the standings.
While on the one hand, Gareth Bale and James Rodriguez are indeed two senior players who rarely get the chance to appear since the beginning of this season. Strangely, Zidane did not give the opportunity for both of them to play in the match.
It’s just different compared to previous matches, the two players are not visible on the player bench. For information, Bale is often the spotlight regarding his behavior on the bench lately.
While James has been repeatedly rumored to be leaving the Santiago Bernabeu. His future at Real Madrid is on the verge of finishing.
Regarding the Colombian, Zidane gave a signal that the rumors about his departure were true. As for Gareth Bale, the French coach is only arguing a technical problem so that the player is not included in the squad.
“About James, you already know what happened. Bale’s absence is a technical decision, nothing more, “he said as quoted by Marca.
Real Madrid itself was only able to pick a point in the match at the Leganes headquarters yesterday due to a 2-2 draw. But as we said, the results did not affect the position in the final standings, Real Madrid still won.
It’s just that Zidane’s decision to pull aside the two players began to heat up transfer speculation, which recently echoed in various media.
James himself is often rumored to be joining one of the rival clubs, Atletico Madrid. While Gareth Bale is believed to migrate to China to join the Chinese Super League club.
But of course, all these new transfer speculations will be answered in the upcoming transfer market.
