James Rodriguez suffered a lot in his last year in the Real Madrid. He played little, went many times to the bank and in the end they didn’t even call him, to such an extent that the Colombian preferred to tell DT Zinedine Zidane that he did not take it into account in the last days of the Spanish league and of the Champions League.
From Real Madrid, James went to Everton and In his first game, on Sunday against Tottenham, he had a good performance, in the victory of his team by 0-1.
However, this Wednesday, James wasn’t even called up for Everton’s League Cup debut, in which his club beat Salford City 3-0, a League Two team, that is, the English fourth division.
Why didn’t James play? The reason is simple: DT Carlo Ancelotti preferred to save practically his entire team for the Premier League game on Saturday, when he will face West Bromwich Albion (6:30 am, Colombian time).
Of the 11 first basemen in the game against Tottenham, only one repeated in the formation in Wednesday’s game, central defender Michael Keane, who also scored his team’s first goal.
James is ready to return on Saturday in the Premier League and with the idea of continuing to gain minutes and space in his new squad.
