Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has come under serious verbal attack from the agent of forward Gareth Bale following his decision to drop the Welshman from his squad.
Bale was initially dropped for the home game against Villarreal in the Spanish La Liga last weekend and Real Madrid won the five-goal thriller by 3-2 without him.
The former Southampton and Tottenham Hotspur player has been dropped again following his omission from the Real Madrid squad to face an away game against Basque club Real Sociedad.
His agent Jonathan Barrett spoke to Goal about the new development which he described as a shame.
Bale’s agent slammed Zidane for the decision before admitting that his client getting more game time is up to the Real Madrid manager.
Jonathan Barrett had earlier revealed that Real Madrid will sell his client if they can get the right transfer fee for him.
A recent publication from Spanish newspaper AS claimed that Real Madrid want to sell Bale this summer as part of the major rebuilding job at the club.
He has three years left on his contract and it remains to be seen where he’ll play his football next season.
Premier League sides like Chelsea, former club Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United have all been linked with a summer swoop for him.
