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.

An eyewitness has given an account on the knife attack on Arsenal stars, Mesut Ozil and Sead Kolasinac on Thursday.

The duo were chased for a mile by knife-wielding motorbike riders in an attempted daylight car-jacking in north London.

Ozil, who earns £350,000-a-week, was ambushed as he drove his black Mercedes G-Class through Childs Hill at around 5pm.

But as the thugs surrounded his SUV, Ozil’s teammate and childhood friend, Sead ‘The Tank’ Kolasinac, took them on.

Financial worker Azuka Alintah, 36, told the MailOnline: “Ozil looked absolutely terrified, as anybody would after being chased by men with knives.

“He looked like he was running for his life. And I suppose he was.

“I saw him disappear into the restaurant with the motorcycle guys on his tail.

“They didn’t take off their helmets and were all in black, wearing long sleeved tops in this hot weather. They stood out.

“God knows what would have happened if they’d caught him. It looked to me like he’d have been hacked to shreds and he clearly thought so too.

“As soon as the restaurant staff started to come to the window and to the doorway, they turned around and roared off.”

The police have opened an investigation into the attack.

The goalkeeper can’t stop replaying that losing moment in the semi-final against Algeria, wishing it would’ve turned out differently somehow
Daniel Akpeyi defended his teammates from criticism following Nigeria’s 2-1 defeat to Algeria in Sunday’s Africa Cup of Nations (Afcon) semi-final.
The Super Eagles looked to be in with a great chance of beating Djamel Belmadi’s men to reach the competition’s final after dismissing South Africa in the quarter-final.

However, a Riyad Mahrez last-minute free-kick sent Gernot Rohr’s men crashing after Odion Ighalo had erased Willam Troost-Ekong’s own goal.

Rohr’s team faced the wrath of fans for offering precious little in Cairo, but Akpeyi believes otherwise.
