Real Madrid coach Zidane defends Kepa snub: We just didn't need him

Zinedine Zidane insisted Bale was left out for 'rest' ahead of the Champions League semi-finals Zinedine Zidane insisted Bale was left out for'rest ahead of the Champions League semi-finals

Zinedine Zidane has moved to reassure Gareth Bale he still has a future at Real Madrid amid claims the player has already chose to leave the Bernabeu this summer.

The Welshman was named among the substitutes for Wednesday's 1-1 draw with Athletic Bilbao and came off the bench with just 20 minutes remaining.

The former Tottenham forward nearly found the leveller, clipping a volley narrowly wide before Cristiano Ronaldo's instinctive backheel beat inspired Athletic goalkeeper Kepa Arrizabalaga three minutes from time.

Real face Bayern Munich in their Champions League semi-final next week, and Zidane said Bale was rested for the Malaga clash with that game in mind, as was Cristiano Ronaldo, Luka Modric and Raphael Varane.

These problems have caused Bale to lose his spot in the starting line-up to youngsters like Marco Asensio, Lucas Vazquez, and Isco.

After the recent rumours linking him with Inter, Gareth Bale could be forced out of Real Madrid according to Sky Sports. He did not start today, others did and are playing well too.

Zidane also defended his transfer policy, after seeing Athletic keeper Kepa Arrizabalaga put in a man of the match display to deny his side scoring multiple times, especially in the first half. English giants Manchester United were keen on resurrecting Bale at Old Trafford this summer but the Los Blancos boss Zinedine Zidane has told any potential suitors to back off his rapid and skillful attacker.

"For me there is no such thing, I made that decision, period, because I do not make changes in the middle of the season, Kepa is a good goalkeeper", he added.
