Zidane: Bale not worth the 100m Euro

By: Ahmad Serag


French football coach Zinedine Zidane claimed that Gareth Bale Tottenham player does not merit his massive fee of 100m Euro, admitted that no football player is worth such money-100 million Euro- even Zidane himself.

While the royal team has paid that amount to gain Gareth Bale –Tottenham player- during last summer.

Zidane, who moved to Madrid in 2001 for what was then a world record fee and now the club’s assistant coach. He told French TV station Canal Plus: “Is Bale worth that amount? This question will have to be asked in a year,”

“Ten years ago, I recognized that I was not worth €75million. Nowadays I have a tendency to say the same.

“But two clubs agree a price without being forced to. That’s football, unfortunately. It is difficult to understand. It is incomprehensible with all that is going on today”.

Zidane, who will work alongside new coach Carlo Ancelotti, added: “Bale understands the impact of his arrival. He comes to the best club in the world, and does so with this huge transfer price.”
