Gareth Bale’s six-year stint with Real Madrid seems to end in a sour tone after he was not used in the club’s 2-0 home loss to Real Betis on the last day of the season.
Manager Zinedine Zidane didn’t feel the need to use the Welshman to inspire a comeback, leaving the attacker frustrated full-time.
The 29-year-old then refused to acknowledge the Bernabeu crowd after the final whistle by quickly descending the tunnel and back to the locker rooms.

Reports show Zidane has told Bale he will be frozen from the first team if he doesn’t find a new club this summer.
The attacker has been linked with a return to the Premier League with a loan option, but his astronomically high wages will be a problem for potential candidates.
It also seems to be a big deal for Real, who hopes to fire him sooner rather than later, but Bale looks set to stay and see his current three-year deal worth £ 15m a season.
According to Spanish radio station Radio radio, Bale reportedly told his teammates that he likes to stay and “play golf” when he’s not selected to play.

“I have three years left on my contract,” he said. “If they want me to go, they have to pay me £ 15 million a season. If not, I will stay here. And if I have to play golf, I will. ‘
Known as an avid golfer, Bale enjoys sports in his spare time.
The former Tottenham winger even built a golf course in his backyard and copied some of the world’s famous holes.
The chosen three holes of the Wales international were the 12th in Augusta, the Royal Troon stamp and the tricky par-17th in Sawgrass.
When asked about his personal course last year, Bale said: ‘When I moved here I had a beautiful piece of land here and I wanted to do something with it and decided that I would like to make a dream come true and build a mini golf course in my House.
‘From an ordinary piece of land to build what we were now, it was a lot of hard work and a lot of craftsmanship.

Bale’s hobby outside of football has often got him into trouble with the Spanish press
“It’s a lot better than I ever thought and I’m just so happy to have it here now and so happy to have chosen Southwest Greens.”
However, Bale’s hobby outside of football has often got him into trouble with the Spanish press, who believe his recurring injuries are due to playing the sport.
Zidane remained cautious about Bale’s future after the game.
When asked if he will work with Bale again when the players return for pre-season training on July 6 for the summer tour of North America, Zidane said, “I don’t know what will happen. Lately I have chosen other players. Anything can happen. ”
