Is Zidane past caring what Bales does?

It appears that Zinedine Zidane really does not care what Gareth Bale does or doesn’t do following his recent antics while on the Real Madrid bench.

In the nine games since Real Madrid returned from COVID-19 lockdown, Gareth Bale has made just two appearances. 

Zinedine Zidane has seen fit to leave the Welshman on the bench as an unused sub on seven occasions.

In the most recent games, Bale has appeared carefree as to what is transpiring on the field and more interested in playing the joker.

Despite the player’s agent recently claiming he cannot see his client leaving Madrid, it appears that Zinedine Zidane has all but washed his hands of him.

When asked about Bale’s shenanigans, the Frenchman simply said he had no problems, almost as if to say he really did not care.

According to The Metro, Zidane said:

“I have no complaints about Bale, absolutely none.”

 “We are all in this together and thinking about winning the remaining matches to win La Liga.”

Surely Bale’s Madrid career is over, but who will be able to afford one of football’s highest-paid players?
