Zinedine Zidane gave quite an irritated interview when most post match questions where pointed at Bale instead of his team.
“I don’t know what he [Bale] did. I am here with my players,” Zidane told reporters when asked about Bale’s apparent golf trip. “I cannot comment on that. I hope he has trained there [in Madrid]. We are here thinking of the team.
“We will see when we get back. I’m not going to stop anybody doing anything, we all have our responsibilities. I don’t get into his personal life. He stayed there to train, and I think he did that.”
Pressed again on Bale, Zidane added: “Another question? You can’t put me in a position I don’t want to be. I won’t answer more than this.”
The CSL’s transfer window has now closed, denying Bale a possible exit route from Madrid after six years at the club.
“Until August 31, anything can happen,” Zidane added, referring to LaLiga’s deadline for new arrivals.
“I am sure you are tired of my answers, as I am tired of them at this stage.”
We are sure Zizou has things under control but it seems as if Bale is still winning the battle of the egos at Madrid, thanks to his massive salary.
