Real Madrid He defended the playmaker
James Rodriguez didn’t play at all for Real Madrid when they returned against Eibar, once again having to watch on.
The playmaker hasn’t played much at all this season and Faustino Asprilla has come to his defence, criticising Zinedine Zidane.
“James isn’t irresponsible,” Asprilla told Blu Radio Colombia.
“He trains every day just like everyone else.
“The coaches say that all players are the same to give motivation to substitutes, but they have three or four who always play.
“At Real Madrid, there are players who come from lower down and who come up.
“Don’t tell me that the top scorer of a World Cup is below Mariano or whoever in the pecking order.
“There’s a need for a little respect.
“James is patient, but I would tell Zidane to ‘eat s**t’.”
