gareth bale decides not to play against man city as zidane chooses not to elaborate on real madrid stars reason why

REAL MADRID star Gareth Bale has decided NOT to play in the crucial Champions League clash against Man City on Friday.

The Welshman did not feature in any of Los Blancos’ final seven games as they won La Liga.

Reports in Spain say the relationship between Bale and Zinedine Zidane is ‘ completely broken’ and the pair won’t even ‘look at each other’.

Bale raised eyebrows last month with some bizarre celebrations as Real lifted the title.

Bale was left in Madrid for the trip to Manchester and French legend Zidane has claimed that it was the 31-year-old’s decision not to play – but refused to reveal anything else.

Zidane said: “It was a personal conversation I had with him. He preferred not to play.

“The rest remains between me and him but he said he didn’t want to play.”

Zidane was pressed further on the matter but refused to elaborate.

“I answered before to explain the situation and I don’t want to add anything else,” he added.

“The rest is a private conversation between player and coach. There is nothing else to add.”

Asked if Bale had a future at Real, Zidane said: “I don’t know. Now he is a current player at Real Madrid.

“That has not changed. He is our player. I respect that and I respect him, like everyone else.

“He preferred not to play. That is the only thing I can tell you.

“The rest of us are all here, preparing for the game. The only thing we are concentrating on is the game.”
