Zinedine Zidane A “Disgrace” Over Gareth Bale Exit Comments: Agent

Zinedine Zidane A Disgrace Over Gareth Bale Exit Comments: Agent


“Zidane is a disgrace, he shows no respect for a player that has done so much for Real Madrid,” Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett told AFP.

Asked whether Gareth Bale is close to leaving Madrid, Barnett added: “We are working on it”.

Gareth Bale has been frozen out in Madrid by Zidane despite helping his side to a Spanish title and four Champions Leagues since arriving from Tottenham Hotspur six year ago.

His brace, including a brilliant bicycle kick, sank Liverpool in the 2018 final, but he was shunted aside by Zidane as soon as he returned to the Real bench in early March.

After Zidane’s reappointment, Bale played 90 minutes in just three of the remaining 11 matches, was left out completely four times and frequently substituted when he did play.

He was denied a chance to say goodbye at the end of last season when he was left on the bench in a 0-2 loss to Real Betis that saw Zidane’s side submerged with boos and whistles.

However Zidane insists that his treatment of the 30-year-old forward “is nothing personal”, even though Bale would be welcome at some of Europe’s biggest clubs.

“There comes a time when things are done because they need to be done,” Zidane added after the Bayern defeat.

“I’ve not got anything against him. We have to make decisions and change things, that’s all there is to it.

“I don’t know if this will happen in 24 or 48 hours’ time. The situation will change and it’s for the best for everyone.”

Bale joined Real Madrid to much fanfare, a blockbuster transfer fee and a big salary that may prove to be an obstacle for all but the richest teams.

He has three seasons left on his deal and has been linked to Tottenham, Manchester United and Bayern.
