Zinedine Zidane insists never had problem with Gareth Bale. “All I can do is wish him all the best and that’s all there is to it.”
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane says he never had a problem with Gareth Bale as he nears a return to Tottenham.
Despite winning four Champions League titles, two La Ligas, one Copa del Rey, three Uefa Super Cups and three Club World Cups while at the Bernabeu, the 31-year-old has been frozen out by Zidane.
But the Real boss was quick to praise the contribution Bale had made and insisted there has never been a personal issue with him.
“I’ve never had an issue with him,” he said on the club’s official website. “I know what he’s done at this club, nobody can take that away from him and these are simply things that can happen for different reasons.
“Everyone is entitled to their opinion on these issues. Gareth is still our player and the deal has yet to have been completed. We’re not going to speak about things yet as that would make no sense.”
