first_imgAfter a week of tranquility after having proclaimed champion of the Supercup, the waters became cloudy again in the bosom of Real Madrid. Zinedine Zidane decided not to summon Gareth Bale, absent in the Saudi supercopero tournament suffering from respiratory tract infection, for the match against Sevilla (this Saturday, 4:00 pm, Movistar LaLiga). The Welshman, who had trained all week, falls again from a white call. AS has asked the club and he said that Bale had nothing physical. There is no medical part of Madrid at this time, so everything confirms that it is a purely technical decision. It seems that Zidane has sentenced him. Like Bale, Zidane did not mention Sergio Ramos, James and Mariano. The first is recovering from a sprained ankle, while the last two are also by technical decision.Although the workforce was in Arabia, both Bale and Benzema went to the white facilities to continue their recovery. This week, the Welshman exercised normally. On the club’s website there are images of Welsh these days working normally. Even on Friday morning, in the last session of the week, the white 11 worked at the same pace as the rest of the squad. Now, and before a match like Sevilla, the Welshman will see him again from the box of players. Bet that he will leave before the end of it, as he has been doing throughout this season.It is true that Bale has been counting on minutes throughout the campaign despite not having the love of Zidane. His phrase in Kiev, after the Champions League final against Liverpool (“I need to play every weekend, something that has not happened this season. I was injured 5 weeks and I have not had regularity. Obviously I have to sit down with my representative to speak”), fell like a bomb in the bosom of the board … and Zidane, who felt attacked. Zizou, a formidable group manager who values ​​the group above all the elements, saw its habitat attacked. He ended up leaving for differences with the directive. Upon his return, he assured that they would “change things”, but the Bale case not only does not change. It just keeps spinning. The Welshman (charges 17 million euros, another handicap for possible sale and with contract until 2022) started well, despite the intentions of the preseason technician (“He is negotiating his departure; if he leaves tomorrow, the better”). He left as a starter in Vigo, assisted Benzema in the goal that opened the League for whites, made a double on the third day in Villarreal and … there stopped the Welsh scoring nose, which adds 140 days without seeing the door.Gradually, what seemed like a problem that was being solved gradually, turned 180 degrees. A successful measure of Zidane (he did not summon him for the first meeting of Madrid in the Champions League in the first meeting of the whites in the Bernabéu in this competition against the Bruges to give him rest) left him out of place. He arrived late at the stadium: the game started at 6:55 p.m. and he arrived at 6:59 p.m. (it is true that there was hellish traffic around the stadium on that day). That same month of October he left with his team and returned injured. He did not play in a month and left again with the Welsh team.There and after qualifying to play the final phase of the 2020 Eurocup, he refilled the spotlights after a controversial celebration: Bale jumped happily with a banner that said “Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order “), something that unnerved white fans. It is worth mentioning the loud sound he received when he jumped into the field on November 23, in the match that Madrid won against Real Sociedad (3-1).His relationship with the stands is like a roller coaster: after starting listening to applause, the white fans seem to have tired of him because of his continuous gestures: simulating golf shots during training (he even received a stick at the Christmas dinner held by the team at the beginning of December), playing on the bench of Mestalla before jumping to the pitch … the Welshman seems to be absent from everything surrounding the white team. And Zidane, who continues to ensure that he has all the players, has already grown tired of the Welsh attitude (unable, for example, to smile at the delivery of vehicles to the players).last_img
