Real Madrid manager, Zinedine Zidane has said Gareth Bale is not a trouble maker at the club and he will continue to back his players.
Recall that the Welshman celebrated with a flag bearing the message “WALES. GOLF. MADRID… IN THAT ORDER” after Wales’ qualification for Euro 2020, and it made fans of the Spanish giant very angry.
Speaking on why he defends the ex-Spurs player all the time, Zidane said he does that with all his players because they do all they can to defend the Real Madrid badge.
He added that Gareth needs more minutes on the pitch for everyone to see the best of him.
His words, “I always defend my players. It’s not that I need to. They train every day, they work hard and want to defend the Real Madrid badge,”
“So I don’t share the same opinion. It’s true he’s had a few injuries but you can’t do anything when a player is injured.
“Hopefully he can string together more games, a few training sessions, get minutes under his belt and get back into playing and training at the same pace as his team-mates.
“When he is fit we want him to come back and be in good shape. It is a shame. He is not happy because he wants to be training with the side.”
“I am always worried when a player is injured, it’s something I don’t like to see,”
“I have 25 players here and it is tough to me because I have to pick a side, but I don’t want players injured. Gareth’s injury isn’t serious, a slight sprain and he’ll be back soon.
“You’re entitled to think what you want, but when I am with the player, I have spoken to him and he wants to be with the team and wants to play, but the other day he suffered a slight injury.”
On Hazard, “I can’t confirm a comeback date as he has just started training with the ball. There is very little or no pain there now,”
“He will no doubt improve and hopefully be back with the team soon. It is excellent for the player to be able to train with the team, it’s good for his morale and confidence, but I can’t confirm a date.”
