Real Madrid coach Zidane drops Bale for final game of season

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane has dropped Gareth Bale for the final game of the season.

Sport reports James Rodriguez and Bale have been left out of the Real Madrid squad for their final game of the season against Leganes on Sunday.

Zidane has decided not to call on either James or Bale for technical reasons, while Marcelo is also absent. Bale has asked Zidane not to include him in the squad for the match, removing himself, as he did during the title celebration on Thursday after the 2-1 win over Villarreal.

Eden Hazard didn't complete training on Saturday and will not play against Leganes. The aim is to keep him fit for the Champions League game against Manchester City on Aug. 7. City won the first leg at the Santiago Bernabeu 2-1.
