REAL Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane has confirmed Gareth Bale will be in the squad for his team’s La Liga clash with Real Mallorca tomorrow.
But, speaking at the pre-game press conference this afternoon, Zidane would not confirm whether the Welsh international would be playing.
He told reporters: “Tomorrow we have a game and we will all be there, and Gareth is going to be with us. It’s the only thing I can tell you.”
The non-committal words from Zidane come just 24 hours after former Real manager Jorge Valdano claimed that Bale was not in Zidane’s plans for the future.
Bale has not started a game since La Liga returned to action after lockdown and has only played 30 minutes off the bench.
In a radio interview with Onda Cero, Valdano said: “Bale does not seem to care too much either, and coaches know when a player wants to play.”
