Zidane Left Bale On Bench Because Of Attitude

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has said Gareth Bale’s attitude “day-to-day” meant he did not get on the pitch in what could have been his final match with the club during the 2-0 defeat to Real Betis.

Los Blancos finished the campaign in disappointing fashion but Bale was not called upon, despite being named a substitute and walked straight down the tunnel at full-time.

Although Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett told ESPN FC this week that his client was determined to see out a contract which runs until 2022, Zidane said the Wales international’s daily work at training meant he did not deserve a chance to play.

“It is true, I did not (give Bale a chance to say goodbye),” Zidane said. “If I had another substitute to make, I would not have done anything different.

“But I have to look at the day-to-day, and make decisions. And when there is something I do not like, or does not fit for me, I must do what I think best. It might be difficult for the player.

“We cannot forget all he has done here, but I must live in the present, think of the future. We will see (if Bale continues). I don’t know what will happen, truthfully.”

Goalkeeper Keylor Navas did get a chance to bid farewell to the Bernabeu before he likely leaves this summer, saluting all four corners of the stadium after making a string of saves to keep the score down.

“I don’t know what will happen,” Zidane said when asked if Navas would now leave. “I am repeating myself, sorry, but I don’t know.

“Keylor played well today, the fans were happy, that’s all. Next year, we will see when we come back here.”
