Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane says is not interested in discussing the latest Gareth Bale controversy and has backed his player to be important again for Los blancos (EveningStandard).

Bale has been in the eye of the storm in recent weeks after sitting out the last six games for Real and then featuring twice for Wales in the international break, when he was also accused of disrespecting the club as he and his team-mates celebrated qualification to Euro 2020 by singing and dancing with a flag which read ‘Wales. Golf. Madrid. In that order.’

According to EveningStandard, Zidane was asked nine questions about the Welshman in his press conference on Friday and the first one, predictably, focused on the flag.

“I consider that we make too much noise with Gareth,” the Frenchman said. “It’s important we concentrate on football. Everyone has their opinion, but in the end it’s too much.

“We have him back and we’re delighted. He has given a lot to the club and I only look at the sporting side. The other stuff doesn’t interest me.”

But it does interest the Madrid media and the questions continued. Next, Zidane was asked about a possible backlash from fans at the Santiago Bernabeu on Saturday, when Madrid host Real Sociedad in La Liga.
