Cristiano Ronaldo ensured he will occupy the front pages on Sunday morning after casting doubt on his future at Real Madrid after Zinedine Zidane’s side lifted their third consecutive Champions League trophy with a 3-1 win over Liverpool in Kiev but Gareth Bale, the hero on the night, also gave no assurances about his own continuance at the Bernabéu next season after the final whistle.
Speaking to reporters after the game, Bale hinted that he may seek pastures new in the summer after failing to hold down a regular starting place in Zidane’s team this season, particularly in Europe.
Bale: "I was disappointed not to start, I felt that I deserved to"
“Obviously, I was very disappointed not to start the game, I felt that I deserved to, but it’s the manager who makes the decisions. Obviously I need to play every week, something that hasn’t been the case this season. I was injured for five weeks and I haven’t been playing regularly. I’ll have to sit down with my agent and talk about it,” the Welshman said.
