Real Madrid still showed strength in the absence of Bale. At this point, any position in coach Zidane’s team can score. And this could be a sign that Gareth Bale is about to be eliminated by Real Madrid.
Bale has been absent for 6 matches in this 2019/20 season for a variety of reasons. He was banned for 1 match for a red card, missed 2 matches because of an injury and was not registered in the remaining 3 games when coach Zidane followed the advice of the medical department.
At a time when his relationship with coach Zidane was healing after the summer of 2019, the tension was back. What coach Zidane can explain about the mysterious disappearance of Bale is due to lack of fitness and Real Madrid do not want to risk.
However, it was unacceptable for him to “not be ready to play because he was in trouble” or “to come to London”.
Bale thinks coach Zidane punished him and didn’t want to suffer it any more. Immediately, he asked his agent Jonathan Barnett to plan to leave Real Madrid in January 2020 on the grounds that he did not receive the recognition or protection he deserved. However, no club in Europe wants to sign Bale because of a salary of 17 million euros per season with a history of injury.
It was he who created the confrontation with coach Zidane, not from the media. Bale even asked Real Madrid not to disclose information about the injury. This is only a very small part of his separation from the group, which has been a long process, not until now. For Bale, life at Real Madrid now only serves golf passion, not football.
However, he is no longer important to Real Madrid because now Zidane has Eden Hazard, Rodrygo and is constantly publicizing his intention to recruit Kylian Mbappe. The numbers also prove this.
If leaving 2 goals and 2 assists of Bale, Real Madrid only lost 3 points in La Liga 2019/20. Meanwhile, his stay with unhappy after the turbulent 2019 summer brought trouble.
He put personal interests first and always seemed to be separate in the dressing room. He always plays in a personal, selfish, non-compliance tactic, instability and does not really meet the expectations of the leadership as well as the fans.
