100 minutes. In the last seven games. Not even 15 minutes on average.

Gareth Bale continues to live a rather dreary existence at Real Madrid. Now a compatriot and former Tottenham team colleague of the Welsh has spoken out - and thrown a wild theory about real coach Zinedine Zidane into the room.

"I can't believe what is happening to him at Real. I think Zidane is annoyed that Gareth has scored a better goal than him. It seems like a personal matter," said David Bentley of 888sport.

To explain: Zidane scored the decisive goal in the 2002 Champions League final against Bayer Leverkusen with a spectacular volley decrease. Bale, in turn, was successful in the 2018 final 122 seconds after being substituted by a fallback.

"Bale is not arrogant"

Also the recurring accusation that Bale never really tried to be in Madrid the former winger of the Spurs does not want to integrate.

"Thing is, Bale is not arrogant. He's just calm," Bentley said. "He doesn't say much and maybe they'll think he's arrogant and just wants to play golf instead of getting involved. But he just wants to do what he can."

Bentley raved about the qualities of the young Bale, with whom he ran together for the Spurs from 2008.

"He could do everything. We had a lot of young, talented players like Luka Modric, Rafael van der Vaart or Jermain Defoe, but Gareth Bale could do everything," said Bentley, who ended his career in 2013.

"His tackles were better, his free kicks were better. He could run faster and was stronger. He had huge bounce and was able to head. He was just an all-rounder."

Bale's contract in Madrid runs until the summer of 2022. The 30-year-old has scored 105 goals in 681 games for the royal team and has prepared 68 more. He also won the Champions League four times with Real.
