    French-born former football star and current manager of Real Madrid Zinedine Zidane recently stated that he hoped Gareth Bale would leave the team soon, and that it would "be best for everyone".

    The agent representing Gareth Bale, Welsh winger for Real Madrid, has reacted to Zinedine Zidane's latest comments regarding the departure of the footballer from the team.

    In a statement reported by ESPN, Bale's agent Jonathan Barnett said that Zidane was a disgrace to say such a thing about a player who had contributed so greatly for Real Madrid.

    Zidane has hinted on numerous occasions that he wanted Barnett gone ever since the French footballer became Real Madrid's head coach in March.
