It’s no secret that he’s not Zinedine Zidane’s… favorite player at Real Madrid, the French coach has favored others over the Colombian, and it seems that he feels it’s time to move on.
One man at Santiago Bernabeu will definitely miss James Rodriguez, if he leaves the club indeed.
If he asked my opinion, I would tell him to stay. Obviously he has his complaints and the best thing would be that he plays more, but these are very personal things
Cristiano Ronaldo told La Sexta, talking about his Colombian teammate.
James has his reasons to leave, and we have to respect them. If he doesn’t feel happy and if he wants more, then he should look for the best thing for him
the Real Madrid super star said, knowing that 25-year-old James has grown tired of not getting the recognition he feels he deserves by his coach.
He has the potential to play for Real Madrid, but he has his reasons and we must respect them
Ronaldo repeated, but that’s exactly the point, James feels he doesn’t ‘have the potential’ to play for Real Madrid, he feels he has already proven he has what it takes to be playing much more for the team, instead of still struggling to earn some game time.
