Zinedine Zidane: Nothing has changed with Gareth Bale despite rescuing Real Madrid

first_imgZinedine Zidane praised Gareth Bale’s goalscoring performance against Arsenal but insisted nothing had changed with the Real Madrid outcast.Bale came off the bench to rescue Madrid, who trailed 2-0 at halftime before the Wales star scored to inspire a 2-2 draw at the International Champions Cup, where Zidane’s men prevailed 3-2 on penalties. “He is with us and we will continue working. We play well 10 against 11 and better 10 against 10. I don’t know what will happen. He wanted to play and the other day no.”I haven’t talked to him. He has trained normally and that’s why he played. Nothing has changed, you know what the situation is like.” FT: @RealMadrid 2-2 @Arsenal (3-2 pens) @GarethBale11 56′, @marcoasensio10 59′; Lacazette 10′ (p), Aubameyang 24’#Emirates | #RealMadridIsHere pic.twitter.com/Gu0KP4YqoV— Real Madrid C.F. (@realmadriden) July 24, 2019Bale stole the show in the second half at FedEx Field, where Marco Asensio also impressed before he left the field on a stretcher. Gareth Bale’s agent slams ‘disgrace’ Zinedine Zidane after Madrid transfer revelation Substitute Asensio equalized three minutes after Bale reduced the deficit in the 56th minute against Arsenal, who had Sokratis Papastathopoulos sent off for a second yellow card prior to the interval.However, Asensio’s game was abruptly cut short by an apparent knee injury and Zidane revealed he is very concerned.”It’s worrisome,” Zidane said. “Hopefully not, but he’s gone directly to the hospital to test. It looks bad.” Tipped to leave Madrid, Bale sat out last week’s loss to Bayern Munich, but he was surprisingly involved in Maryland after Zidane claimed the 30-year-old was close to departing the Santiago Bernabeu.Asked about Bale’s performance on Tuesday, head coach Zidane — who saw Nacho Fernandez sent off in the ninth minute for a handball — told reporters: “He has played a good game and I am happy for him. As for everyone. Related Newslast_img read more
