Zidane Didn't Speak To Bale After Wonder Goal

Gareth Bale stole the headlines with his incredible bicycle-kick goal in the UEFA Champions League final against Liverpool on Saturday, but it has since been claimed that Zinedine Zidane snubbed the Welshman after the game.

The Welshman is said to be frustrated at Los Blancos, and said after the game that he felt he deserved to start the final in Kyiv.

The player was, however, named among the substitutes, and played a hugely important role when he came on from the bench to score twice and win the game 3-1 for his team.

Many imagined Zidane would have been delighted with the attacker's impact, but after the game, when Bale was asked: "So he has not spoken to you, he's said nothing?", he simply replied "No", according to the Daily Star.

Following the win, the former Tottenham Hotspur player insisted that he needs to be playing week in and week out, which has not happened at Real this season.

It is widely believed the 28-year-old will be on his way out of the club in this transfer window, with Manchester United reportedly favourites to sign him.

Bale played 39 games for Real in the 2017/18 campaign, scoring 21 goals and assisting a further eight strikes.
