Real Madrid coach Zidane tightlipped on Bale; talks up Brahim

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane was tightlipped on Gareth Bale's future after victory over Athletic Bilbao.

Bale was again jeered during the game.

Zidane stated: "He had a chance to score and I feel sorry for him because I would have liked to seen Bale score. I'm not going to get involved in those things. You're free to ask the question, but I'm allowed to answer what I like."

Zidane was more open on the performance of Brahim Diaz.

"He's a good player. I knew about him before and what I like about Brahim is that when he picks the ball up, h heads for goal. He likes to get on the ball and link up with other. It's a shame that he didn't score the chance he had, I would have like to see him score. It's a shame because he was only out there for 10 or 12 minutes."
