Spurs Legend Mido has urged Gareth Bale to return to Tottenham after it earlier claimed that the Welshman was considering retirement.
Bale, reportedly is not in the good graces of Real Madrid manager with both men said not be on speaking terms.
The speculations of their rift caught even more fire after the 29-year-old was left on the bench for the entire game by Zidane as he saw his side beaten 2-0 by Real Betis at home on the last day of the season.
Zidane on Bale 🗣
"If I think a player doesn't fit in the team I have to do what I think works best.
I have counted on other players in more in recent weeks, and if I had a fourth substitute today I would not have brought him on."

Zidane while explaining Bale’s exclusion hinted that the Welshman was surplus to the team’s requirement in the following post-match press conference.
Bale is said to be heavily affected by such treatment by the Madrid boss, so much to that he’s considering hanging up his boots according to talkSPORT host Alan Brazil.
He said: “I’m told he [Bale] just wants to call it a day. He’s got enough money, he can just retire and play golf.”
Spurs Legend Mido wasn’t impressed with such speculations as he urged Bale to return to Tottenham where he’d get all the love and respect he deserves and go on to become one of the best players in the Premier League.
“I hope it’s not true. He gave everything for Tottenham and everything for Real Madrid. And I think he deserves more respect. : Mido replied on talkSPORT.
“I would love to see him back at Tottenham. I remember his first day at the training ground, he arrived with his mum and dad. I believe if he goes back to Tottenham he will rediscover his desire and I think he’s someone that needs to be loved. Not for £100m, though, not for £80m.
“The news that’s coming out now is really bad and he deserves more respect.
“Go back to Tottenham. Take a wage cut. He needs to feel loved and people love him at Tottenham. If he goes back he will be one of the best players in the Premier League.”
