REVEALED: Real Madrid coach Zidane ripped into Bale in Barcelona aftermath
Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane steamed into Gareth Bale in the aftermath of defeat to Barcelona on Sunday.
Bale, having declared himself fit for the game, lasted only 39 minutes before hobbling off.
After the 2-3 reverse, Zidane insisted to the media: “He told me he was fine and I do not regret it at all. I’m disappointed for him. These things can not be controlled.
“Tests will be carried out and I hope it is nothing.”
However, behind closed doors it was a different story, says Don Balon. Zizou accused Bale of “wasting a substitution” and unbalancing his squad as he didn’t have another player available to match the pace of Sergi Roberto in the second-half.
