Rincon: I wish I was given half the chances that James has had at Real Madrid

Former Colombia international Freddy Rincon wishes he was given at least half the opportunities that his fellow countryman James Rodriguez has had at Real Madrid.

Rincon played for Los Blancos for two seasons between 1995 and 1997 but only made 21 appearances.

As a result, Rincon feels that James cannot complain about not being given enough opportunities to prove himself.

“I would not rank my situation as equal to his, because James has had many more opportunities. Each person has to look at how they can take them,” Rincon told Super Combo del Deporte en Cali.

“I would have liked to have had half, or even 20 percent, of the opportunities that he had, but I think that’s up to each person to talk about.

“When he gives explanations without logic, he gives journalists or the people the chance to respond.

“You have to take care of yourself in the profession of a footballer or whatever else, and be able to handle things in the best possible way.”

Rincon also mentioned that he was the subject of racial abuse in the Spanish capital.

“I want to be very clear about things because sometimes you cannot close the window knowing that you have enemies inside,” he said.

“I felt discrimination in Colombia, but also in Spain.

“I am not going to say that here [in Colombia] it was all fine. I felt discrimination in Cali, I felt it in Bogota, I felt it in other places.

“That was not part of football and when I arrived at Real Madrid I was more mature in this aspect because in my country it had already happened to me.

“I am not going to blame Madrid, knowing that it happened in my home [country] too.”
