Zinedine Zidane Comments On Gareth Bale's Real Madrid Future
Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has commented on Gareth Bale's Los Blancos future ahead of the club's UEFA Super Cup clash against Manchester United.
The Welshman has been linked with a move away from the Santiago Bernabeu in recent weeks, and Red Devils manager Jose Mourinho admitted during a press conference recently that he would fight to sign the player should he become available.
Zidane has since insisted that the club and the player should not worry about the media storm being kicked up.
"What's important is the player is feeling well," the Frenchman told reporters, as quoted by ESPN.
"He has had a lot of continued training sessions with us and that is what is the most important.
"The end of last season was not easy for him because he was injured, but now I see him very well, very concentrated.
"What's important for us is not what Mourinho said, it is what we are going to do (on Tuesday night).
"It's the same thing with Cristiano, we've also had stories there. People seem to want to blow a story out of proportion. We are concentrating on what we're doing and that's what's important.
"Bale is a Madrid player. That is all I can say. What I want to talk to you about now is an important match. Him, me, all the players and the fans are here for the match. That is all I can say."
The winger has made 150 appearances in total for the Spanish giants so far, scoring 67 goals and assisting 51 further strikes.
