Gareth Bale makes stunning revelations about ex-Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane

SDYObPkH?format=jpg&name=

Gareth Bale says he is not in touch with ex-Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane since scoring a brace in 2018 Champions League final in Kiev.

According to a Daily Mail report citing FourFourTwo, the former Tottenham star joined proceedings from the sub’s bench, but ended up scoring one of the best goal of the Champions League final before completing his brace in the closing minutes.

However, the Welshman has not spoken with Zidane, since the Los Blancos claimed a third consecutive Champions League title.

“He didn’t talk to me about it – I still haven’t spoken to him since,” Bale opened up while speaking with FourFourTwo.

“Our relationship was good. I wouldn’t say we were best mates, it was just a normal professional relationship.”

At the last count, Bale was always seen as the sacrificial lamb to sit on the bench, while the Zidane’s anointed pair of Cristiano Ronaldo and Karim Benzema do the business on the pitch.

Interestingly, the decision left the 29-year-old Bale furious, but had to respect the manager’s decision to sit on the bench despite his form.

“I was desperate to get onto that pitch,” he explained.

“When I ran on I was still a bit angry, and that’s probably why I did what I did next.

“I’ve watched the goal back a couple of times. I didn’t feel like I had a point to prove – I wanted to do it for myself and the team,” Bale summed up.

Zidane was later replaced by Julen Lopetegui after throwing in the towel only to be succeeded by Santiago Solari in the early stages of the 2018-19 campaign.

Naomi Osaka Sued By Former Tennis Coach, Demands 20% For Life

Published

on

The tennis coach who began working with Naomi Osaka back when she was 13 claims her father signed a contract promising him 20% of her career earnings … and now he’s coming to collect.

The man behind the lawsuit is Christophe Jean — who says Naomi’s father, Leonard Francois, hired him to work with Naomi and his other daughter, Mari, back in 2011.

Jean says Francois couldn’t pay his rates at the time, so they struck a deal in which Jean agreed to accept 20% of Naomi and Mari’s tennis prize money and endorsement deals forever.

That’s not a typo … Jean says he has a copy of the contract where Francois agrees that the term of the deal is “indefinite.” It’s included in Jean’s suit, filed in state court in Florida.

Of course, Naomi — now 21 years old — has blossomed into a tennis superstar, currently ranked #1 in the world … and famously beat Serena Williams at the 2018 US Open.

ccording to the official WTA website, she’s made more than $10.8 MILLION during her career — and that’s not including endorsement money.

So, Jean wants his cut — at least $2 million — which is why he’s suing Naomi, Mari and Leonard.

The other possible issue … can a parent promise a cut of a minor child’s future adult earnings? And, can a judge enforce such a contract?

It’s not exactly cut and dry. We’re looking into it.
