Gareth Bale’s agent Jonathan Barnett has accused Zidane of “holding back” his client’s progress.
Without a club since leaving Real Madrid at the end of last season, Zinedine Zidane is taking advantage of his sabbatical, he who would not have immediately wanted to take up a new challenge, patiently awaiting his turn at the head of theFrench team.
Although Zizou has distanced himself from the field, he is nonetheless a prime target for Jonathan Barnett, the agent of Gareth Bale, who reproaches again and again to the 98 world champion for having lost his foal during his last visit to the bench at Casa Blanca.
“The injuries and misunderstanding of recent seasons with Zidane slowed him down”, he lambasted in remarks relayed by AS. It must be said that the relationship between the Welsh winger and the French coach has not always been good. The latter had even sent him on loan to Tottenham last season.
