With all this experience on the table, it was clear on the subject James Rodríguez: “I love different players and that they have a special class, he is a player who has given a lot to Colombian soccer and for me he still has a lot to give, if it is clearly proposed and they have patience ”.
Even about his little appearance under the orders of Zinedine Zidane, he expressed “the question always arises of what is happening to him and that he has too much pressure”, a situation that, according to the ex-footballer, greatly affects and therefore the solution is “leave him alone because it has already shown what it can give. ”
