Zinedine Zidane has claimed that Gareth Bale missed Real Madrid’s pre-season game against Spurs because he wasn’t feeling well.
Some reports had suggested that Bale chose not to travel to the Audi Cup because he was upset that his £1million-a-week to China had collapsed.
“Bale didn’t travel with us because he didn’t feel that well,” said the Real boss after the match.
“The doctors said he was unwell and the best thing for him was to stay in Madrid. He’s training individually in Madrid
“That was a decision that we made — the club, the doctors, myself and Bale, too.”
