Speaking ahead of Real's first game in La Liga away to Real Sociedad on Sunday, where they will begin their title defence, he said regarding Bale's departure: "It's not like that but I don't really care.
"It's more complicated. With Bale it's always about one side against the other. But I've never had a problem with Gareth.
"There will always be things that happen. Now he's making a change, all we can do is wish him the best... These things happen in football, but I've always said he was a spectacular player."

Zidane also revealed he did not say anything to Bale before he left to return to the Premier League.
"I did not speak to him," he added.
"But I know what he has done for this club. He always proved his quality and what he has achieved with the club cannot be argued with."
