Bale nets as Madrid edge out Leganes

Bale nets as Madrid edge out Leganes

Harry Redknapp has urged Manchester United target Gareth Bale to return to Tottenham Hotspur from Real Madrid this summer.

Naturally, Real boss Zinedine Zidane was asked about his decision to not use Bale after their victory in Germany, and the Frenchman explained: "I have to make choices and I've got some very good players in the squad".

Bale scored an acrobatic opener after just four minutes and Borja Mayoral added a second on the stroke of half-time before Leganes, who had Gabriel sent off after the final whistle, reduced the deficit through Darko Brasanac. "His progression is normal and what he's doing, he's doing well", Zidane said at a press conference on Friday.

"He's not relapsed at all". He's not been in the team in a month, but every day he's much better.

The Wales star has seen his reputation wane over the past season and more, and manager Zinedine Zidane has started to show signs he prefers the likes of Marco Asensio and Lucas Vazquez to Bale. "I ask my people to play like they have never done in their history because we are going to need them to reach the final".
