James Rodriguez reveals he wants to stay longer at Real Madrid
Colombian player, James Rodriguez has great determination to stay at Real Madrid for a long time. But he realized it would be difficult to materialize given his situation in recent years.
The former AS Monaco player has indeed been eliminated from the Los Blancos squad in the last few games this season. In fact, when Zinedine Zidane’s men celebrated the La Liga title, James did not appear in the squad list.
The same situation also occurred when Real Madrid visited the Etihad to play the second leg of the last 16 of the European Champions League some time ago. At that time, Los Blancos were eliminated after being defeated with a final score of 1-2.
Actually, this situation is common for James, he has rarely gotten the opportunity to appear since Zinedine Zidane took over as manager.
Of course this made James feel frustrated, even though his determination to bring Madrid to victory after victory was enormous.
“Not playing is frustrating. I know that I have the conditions ready to always play, but because of other people I can’t do it, ”
“If I was a bad player, then I would accept it. But I am a person who will always want to win and compete, ”Rodriguez told Daniel Habif’s podcast.
His determination to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu for a long time is just as great. But James realizes that as long as Zinedine Zidane is around, he won’t be able to get the chance to play regularly.
“When you know that you don’t have the same opportunities as your teammates, it’s difficult. I want to go and the club doesn’t allow it, ”
“I want to move to a place where I can play, because I know that I didn’t have the opportunity to do that under Zidane, because he already has the foundation,” he concluded.
James, now 29 years old, has recently been linked with a number of Premier League giants. But until now, he has yet to determine how his career will continue after leaving Real Madrid.
