Every day that passes, it feels like James Rodriguez is moving a step closer to the Bernabeu exit, which, if it happens, will be a big mistake made by the Madrid club, at least according to Faustino Asprilla.
They bought him because he scored in a World Cup, because he can make goals, because he was able to score and because he was able to assist
the former Colombia international told ESPN, defending his countryman.
They bought him because he was going to turn into a winger. You must play where you know well. James isn’t a winger, what are you expecting from him? He cannot recover the same amount of balls as that trunk called Casemiro. You simply cannot ask that of a player like James
Asprilla insisted, blaming Zinedine Zidane for not using James properly.
The Colombian signed for Real Madrid right after starring in 2014’s World Cup in Brazil, but three years later he is still to star at Madrid, not the way he was expected, and it looks like he has lost his patience there, while at the same time, Real see they have this summer the chance to profit from selling him.
