Real Madrid tactician Zinedine Zidane seems to have had enough of an issue that claims a conflict between him and Wales national team winger, Gareth Bale. The manager strongly denied the issue, and asked the media to stop untrue news.
After not playing in the last three matches Real Madrid in the Spanish La Liga, Gareth Bale finally played in the match against Osasuna last weekend. In fact, the 30-year-old dropped since the first minute, and Real Madrid won with a final score of 4-1.
Since the 2019/20 season is rolling, Bale is rarely revealed. Not without reason, the former Tottenham Hotspur player had an ankle injury, suspension, until a fever. In total, Bale has only played 10 matches in the Spanish La Liga.
But, in the transfer market last summer, Bale had almost left Real Madrid. In fact, coach Zinedine Zidane claimed to deliberately drive the winger away. However, the discourse of his move to the Chinese club was canceled. Bale finally survived.
However, claims about the player’s rift with coach Zinedine Zidane continue to be heard in Spanish media. Zidane who had been tight-lipped regarding the claim then gave a firm rebuttal.
He even accused the media of deliberately spreading this news so that the conflict with Bale actually happened.
“The problem is there are some people I want to fuss with Gareth. That is not true and never happened. He did not play in the last three matches, but he performed very well for 70 minutes today. We have a lot of players, it’s not easy to balance that,” Zidane told Marca.
As for further, the French coach praised Luka Jovic who performed brilliantly in the match against Osasuna yesterday. The striker, who was bought for 60 million Euros, finally scored his first goal for Los Blancos.
“I am happy for him, I need him, he is a pure striker, who can make you say that even though he plays well but does not score goals, he is not happy. He has to improve, but I’m happy for his goal. That will help him, “said Zidane.
