Bale's tenure with current Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane hasn't been the best albeit Bale being instrumental in the three UEFA Champions League titles Zidane won as manager.

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.
