Gareth Bale is the only player in Real Madrid who has not yet posted a farewell message after Zidane`s farewell. The other 23 players, including Cristiano and Ramos, have expressed themselves through social networks with messages of gratitude to the French coach. But Bale, who has more than 50 million followers combining Twitter and Instagram, has opted for silence. "Why do not you say anything about Zidane, if you can not respect a legend, then you should leave the club!", is just one of the thousands of comments that his last post has, an advertisement that published last Tuesday.
Although the resignation of Zidane was a surprise for both President Florentino Pérez and the players, each and every one of them expressed their admiration and gratitude towards the French coach. The praises were coming from several former players of Madrid and the president of La Liga, Javier Tebas. As well as the tennis player Rafa Nadal, the current French coach Didier Deschamps and the former president of France François Hollande said, "Zidane`s attitude is worthy, in life you do not always have to cling to something, you have to think about other missions.”
Bale, who in the Champions League final started on the bench , and then entered and scored two goals in the 3-1 victory against Liverpool, has not yet spoken. It has been more than 24 hours since Zidane`s farewell.
