Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has told Gareth Bale to remember about his responsibilities at the club.

This is after the winger was reportedly pictured playing golf while Real Madrid were playing Tottenham on Tuesday.

The Welshman was dropped from the Spanish side squad that travelled to Germany for the Audi Cup after his proposed move to Chinese side Jiangsu Suning fell through.

Zidane, however, explained that Bale did not travel because he was unfit, but photographs emerged of him on the golf course, allegedly when Real were losing 1-0 to Spurs.

Zidane said earlier this month it would be “best for everyone” if Bale left Real, prompting the player’s agent Jonathan Barnett to label the manager a “disgrace”.

Bale has won four Champions League titles, La Liga and the Copa del Rey during his six-year stint at Real Madrid, and scored over 100 goals for the club.

Real beat Fenerbahce 5-3 in the third-place play-off in the Audi Cup on Wednesday, a day after their defeat to Spurs.
