Real Madrid coach Zidane: I'm sure Bale was playing golf...

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was unimpressed by news Gareth Bale was playing golf during their friendly win over Fenerbahce.

Zidane couldn't help but smile as he answered questions about the forward.

"You're telling me about something that I'm sure has happened," he said in the post-match press conference after Real Madrid defeated Fenerbahce 5-3, when asked about the golf story.

"I hope he has been training there.

"We'll see when we get back, we'll see what he has been doing in Madrid.

"I'm not going to ban him from doing anything.

"He stayed in Madrid to train and I believe he has been doing so."
