Bale scored an acrobatic effort to restore Los Blancos lead against Liverpool in last season's Champions League final and this led to the trouble between Zidane and Florentino Perez.

According to Spanish news media outlet El Pais, the goal made Real Madrid president go back on his words about selling the Welshman, something Zidane had wanted since the end of the domestic season.
