Bale bows out on bench as Madrid blow season finale

Bale bows out on bench as Madrid blow season finale

Speaking ahead of Real Madrid's final game of the season Zinedine Zidane was cagey on the future of Gareth Bale but crystal clear that he would direct all transfer business for the club. I'm the coach and I will always do what I want to do.

"I'm sorry he didn't get to play, but no-one knows what will happen", he said.

This has been one of the reasons he's been devalued and even if he manages to stay at the Spanish capital club, the player will be struggling for playing time.

Since Zinédine Zidane's return, Real Madrid have only won 50% of their LaLiga games (five from 10), all of them played at Santiago Bernabeu.

In succumbing to defeat, Zidane's side finished the league campaign with 68 points from their 38 allotted games, their lowest points tally since 2002, according to Football Espana.

Konta's response was concerted as the second set went with serve before Pliskova had the opportunity to establish a 4-3 lead. "But we saw Novak in Australia, the same focus, the same attitude [to beat Nadal in straight sets in the final]".


Long-serving defender Marcelo concedes he and his team-mates must shoulder the blame for Real Madrid's "tough" campaign.

Real Madrid ended a hard campaign with another embarrassing defeat as they lost 2-0 against Real Betis at the Santiago Bernabeu in Sunday's LaLiga clash.

"I don't know what will happen", Zidane said when asked if Navas would now leave. Some of the displays, including this one, were as bad as anything seen under either Julen Lopetegui or Santiago Solari.

The France midfielder was keen on joining Barcelona last summer and, despite a mid-season upturn in performances, he remains keen on leaving the club and is said to have informed Solskjaer of his desire to join Real Madrid. Injuries and fitness problems have hampered him season by season and Sunday's game could very well prove to be his final appearance for Los Blancos. "I see it just like that and next year we'll see". We live in the present, although we will not forget the past.

Gareth Bale has endured testing times ever since he joined Real Madrid from Tottenham Hotspur back in 2013. If Eriksen wants to leave the club, then his decision is understandable as he's 27-years-old now and he would certainly want to win some major honours while he's still in the peak of his career.
