Zinedine Zidane seems not to be bothered about Gareth Bale’s switch from Real Madrid to his former club Tottenham as the player had been out of favour under the manager.
Gareth Bale has sealed loan switch to his former club Tottenham for £12million, with reports that the contract could eventually extend for a further year.
The Welshman received heroic welcome by the club fans when he arrived at their training ground on Friday, September 18 as he seals his move from Real Madrid.
Spurs have agreed to pay a percentage of his wages in a bargain deal which amounts to around £12million for the season — and they will officially confirm it.
"It's not like that but I don't really care,” Zidane said ahead of Real's opening La Liga game away at Real Sociedad.
"It's more complicated. With Bale it's always about one side against the other. But I've never had a problem with Gareth.
"There will always be things that happen. Now he's making a change, all we can do is wish him the best. These things happen in football, but I've always said he was a spectacular player."
Recall that Bale left Spurs in 2013 for a then world record of £86million, and now at 31, he has returned to the club seven years later.
