Real Madrid boss Zinedine Zidane: Gareth Bale injury couldn't be avoided


If Asensio gets Bale's job during his absence and plays well, it could be hard for Bale to get his starting job back.

Now, after he was seen limping off the pitch in the club's Sunday La Liga victory over Barcelona, it has been confirmed that he'll sit out for another three weeks, this time missing the Champions League semifinal with what has been ruled as a Grade 2 calf strain.

Madrid did not specify how long it expects Bale to be sidelined, but similar injuries usually require three to four weeks of recovery time.

Bale, 27, was unavailable for recent wins over Bayern Munich and Sporting Gijon after being forced off with a calf injury during the first leg of the Champions League quarter-finals against the Bundesliga giants on 12 April.

"He is the first one unhappy with what happened, but he told me he was at 100 percent, that the two training sessions before the game were flawless, with no problems at all", Zidane said told reporters. "We can not avoid this happening", he had said while adding that injuries are part and parcel of the player's life.

But if that is not the case, then the criticism will continue to grow, for Bale, and even more so for Zidane for picking him when he was clearly not fit to play such an important game.
