Zinedine Zidane Comments After Disastrous Real Madrid Season

Zidane Targets Salah

Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has said Gareth Bale's attitude "day-to-day" meant he did not get on the pitch in what could have been his final match with the club during the 2-0 defeat to Real Betis. I'm the coach and obviously I'm always going to do what I want. "I don't know what will happen, truthfully".

Pogba wants to play Champions League football next campaign, and since the Red Devils failed to nick a top four spot, the player would consider a move away from the club.

Hazard's seven-year stay at Stamford Bridge looks set to come to an end this summer, having entered the final year of his contract and informed the club of his desire to move on, and Real are expected to finalise a move for the 28-year-old following the Europa League final later this month.

Madrid ended the campaign third in the standings on 68 points, their lowest total since the 2001/02 season, while they lost 12 league games for the first time since the 1998/99 campaign.

It's been evident that Real Madrid have problems on the field if reports coming out of Spain are to be believed, one of the problems off the field is offloading Gareth Bale in the summer.

"And when there is something I do not like, or does not fit for me, I must do what I think best", said Zidane.

"I do not know if he said goodbye to the players because I did not come across him", he noted. The 2018/19 season was his most prolific season as he has racked up 26 goals in 49 games including 22 in 36 league games to share the Golden Boot with Mohamed Salah and Pierre-Emerick Aubameyang. "We have to accept that it has been a bad season".

It appears that Madrid are now so keen to get rid of the player that they are resorting to some desperate measures. I'm not saying that we're going to win the lot next season, but we're going to prepare to have a great year.

Keylor Navas bid farewell after the game and the Uruguayan hailed his teammate's contribution to Los Blancos over the years. "But we must not forget this season, we must have it very present to prepare the next one".

And according to The Times, Real are willing to let the 29-year-old leave for free, on condition that his new club inherit his enormous pay packet.
