Zinedine Zidane Rule Gareth Bale Out of Spanish Super Cup final

Zinedine Zidane Head Coach of Real Madrid during the Supercopa de Espana Semi-Final match between Valencia CF and Real Madrid at King Abdullah Sports City on January 8, 2020 in Jeddah, Saudi Arabia.

Zidane's side booked a showdown with Barcelona or Atletico Madrid following a comprehensive 3-1 victory over Valencia in Saudi Arabia on Wednesday.

Bale missed the semi-final with a chest infection, and Zidane, also without the injured Karim Benzema, confirmed the Wales international would play no part in the remainder of the revamped tournament.

"The team is working hard to be playing at this level and it's great to see the dynamic in every single game," added Zidane.

"In yesterday's press conference I said we had to be at our best, and I don't know if we were, but we're pleased with the performance.

"I'm happy with how everyone played. I'm thrilled for Isco getting his goal, he needed that recently; Kroos' inventiveness was fantastic, and Modric's effort – that's his speciality.

"It's what a manager wants to see, for his players to be in great shape. We should be happy, but we haven't won anything yet. We have to rest now, and tomorrow we'll start preparing for the final".
