Gareth Bale has had enough of his situation at Real Madrid. Just as the Welsh player was starting to play well, aware that more playing time would see him improve and sharpen…suddenly he found himself condemned to the stand for the Champions League tie against Club Brugge last week. No-one knows the motivation for Zidane’s decision with the player not suffering from injury, not needing rest or suffering from tiredness. With no reason forthcoming, Bale was back in Zidane’s starting XI for the league game against Granada. One would feel that this is not the best way to motivate a player who needs to feel important and integral to the squad but this is precisely the way the Welsh player feels about his situation at the club.
