Madrid fire one of Bale's closest allies
Madrid's summer overhaul is underway, and not just on the pitch as we might assume.
Just as talk started to circulate about the departure of Antonio Pintus, one of the most important members of Zidane's coaching staff, Marca revealed that others would also be leaving, including the two physios Victor Fonseca and Jaime Benito.
The latter of the two is one of Bale's biggest confidants at the club. Their relationship goes further than just the workplace - the two are good friends, Benito has accompanied Bale to Wales and the winger has even dedicated a goal to the physio.
Benito was also close with Kroos and Modric, whilst Fonseca is a friend of Marcelo's, meaning it won't just be Bale who is affected by these changes to the backroom staff.
