Gareth Bale has fired back at Zinedine Zidane for stating that Real Madrid are trying to sell him as quickly as possible.
According to Zidane who spoke after Real Madrid defeated Bayern Munich 3-1 in a pre-season friendly, a game which sidelined Bale,
“Bale was left out because the club are trying to sell him.
“If he can go tomorrow, it would be better.
“It’s nothing personal, I don’t have anything against Bale, but I have to make decisions. There comes a time when it’s time to change and it’s good for everyone to go their separate ways.
“Leaving is the decision of the coach, and also the player, who knows the situation.”
Reacting to Zidane’s words, Bale through his agent Jonathan Barnett labelled the Frenchman a ‘disgrace’.
“Zidane is a disgrace to speak like that about someone who has done so much for Real,” he told ESPN.
“If and when Gareth goes it will be because it is in the best interest of Gareth and nothing to do with Zidane pushing.”
