Zidane didn’t give Bale a chance to bid a fond farewell to the Madrid fans
Zidane’s relationship with Bale is made even worse at the Bernabeu today. After being dropped from the previous two squad lists, Gareth Bale returned to the bench against Real Betis but was an unused substitute as Real Madrid crashed to a 2-0 defeat.
Marco Asensio, Isco and Lucas Vazquez were all preferred to the Welsh man in Real Madrid’s final match of the season. This is required to be Bale’s last season in Spain and many idea he would be enabled the opportunity to state his goodbyes on the pitch, just like Keylor Navas, but that didn’t turn out to be the case.
Bale knows he isn’t wanted by Zidane but refuses to make his exit easy. Florentino Perez is hoping there will be interest from the Premier League this late spring however it feels like a dismal exit for one of the group’s most significant players as of late.
