Gareth Bale came close to leaving Real Madrid during the summer
Gareth Bale has admitted to playing with “anger” after Zinedine Zidane attempted to force him out of Real Madrid in the summer, but the Wales forward insists he will not let it distract him when playing for club or country.
The 30-year-old had been told he could leave the Spanish giants after falling out of favour under Zidane, but he has since forced his way back into the Frenchman’s plans after a move to Chinese club Jiangsu Suning fell through.
