Zidane on Bale's Injury Progress
Gareth Bale`s future, at Real Madrid, may be the subject of much speculation but he still remains an integral part of Zidane`s plans.
It`s interesting to note that whilst Bale has been absent with his latest injury, Real Madrid have won just 6 out of the 10 games they played.
But, talking to the media ahead of the home fixture with Malaga, Zidane has hinted that Bale is well down the road to recovery, with our French manager remarking about the Welshman,
'We need to make sure he is 100 per cent but I don't think he will need a lot of time to recover his fitness, he is feeling good,
'The important thing is that he is with us, that he trains, plays, because that will stop all the negative things happening around him. A lot is said about his injuries, but he is important to us. He knows that, I know that and everyone does.
'I don't know when he will play.
'We'll see, but he feels good and today he trained without any pain. We know what he can bring to us. He is strong, powerful, very good technically and he works hard. When he has played he has always done well.'
Hopefully, Bale will be back in the first team shortly.
