Real Madrid forward Gareth Bale apparently enjoyed a round of golf on Tuesday, at the same time as the team’s pre-season friendly against Tottenham.
Los Blancos lost 1-0 to Bale’s former side in Munich, with Harry Kane scoring the only goal in the Audi Cup sem-final.
It was revealed on Monday that Bale had pulled out of the trip to Germany, after his move to Chinese Super League side Jiangsu Suning collapsed over the weekend, with some reports claiming he wasn’t in the ‘right mental state’ to play for the team.
And, as reported by El Confidencial and relayed by Marca
The winger was pictured playing at around 8pm, just as Zinedine Zidane’s side had finished their clash with the Premier League outfit, with his course location making it likely that he didn’t watch a second of the game.
Meanwhile, the rumours surrounding the reasons behind Bale’s absence from the squad continue to rumble. While the club chose to claim that it was because negotiations were ongoing with the Chinese outfit, after the game Zidane claimed it was because he ‘didn’t feel like it’.
The Frenchman explained: “He didn’t travel because he didn’t feel like it. He wasn’t fit and speaking with the medical department, it was best for him to stay in Madrid.”
?? “The remake’s never better than the original, is it?”
Zizou destined for failure in his second spell in charge? https://t.co/f1NCNzd54c
