Real Madrid: The problems in Zidane and Bale’s relationship are impossible to solve

Real Madrid Understanding between the pair has broken down

The problems in Zidane and Bale's relationship are impossible to solveChema ReyMARCA

There doesn’t seem to be a solution to the problem that is the relationship between Zinedine Zidane and Gareth Bale at Real Madrid.

The Welshman was left out of the starting line-up to take on Eibar on Sunday and, when he did come on during the second half, he didn’t do much at all.

All the renewed energy and motivation Bale had impressed his teammates with in training over the past few weeks was burst when he found out he was on the bench.

When he was called down to warm up at the Estadio Alfredo Di Stefano, he looked absent, as if the game was nothing to do with him.

It was a sign of things to come in his half an hour ambling about on the pitch.

During the cooling break midway through the second half, he was given a particularly strong message by Zidane.

The relationship between player and coach has never been close – they don’t speak the same language.

This has been on show since the 2017/18 season, which culminated in Bale coming off the bench in the Champions League final in Kiev.

The Welsh forward didn’t celebrate with his boss after his telling impact during the second half and Zidane left soon after.

The animosity between the pair was renewed when Zidane returned nine months later and it caused a scene over the course of the summer transfer window.

Comments flew back and forth between the two camps, with Bale eventually ending up stuck at Real Madrid for another season.

During the campaign, the 30-year-old has shown none of the player that has been key in so much success at the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu in recent years.

The club still see Bale as a player capable of playing an important role in winning more trophies, but they also know that his relationship with Zidane is beyond saving.

Despite this, it doesn’t look as though Bale is itching for a move away from Los Blancos.

He’s happy in Madrid and Jonathan Barnett, his agent, has reiterated that he doesn’t plan to move anywhere else any time soon.
