Within a matter of days, Zidane quit as manager but there has been no contact with Bale since the victory in Kiev.

“He didn’t talk to me about it – I still haven’t spoken to him since. I wouldn’t say we were best mates, it was just a normal professional relationship,” he told FourFourTwo.

Bale added, “I was really frustrated not to start. I was desperate to get onto that pitch. When I ran on I was still a bit angry, and that’s probably why I did what I did next.

“I’ve watched the goal back a couple of times. I didn’t feel like I had a point to prove – I wanted to do it for myself and the team.”
