Zidane is tired of James, and James is tired of Zidane. It’s hard to understand a Colombian’s career.
James – The best-left boots in the world
Zinedine Zidane On Thursday morning defined the game against Alaves as a cup final. In the afternoon, James Rodriguez remained overboard, despite Real Madrid’s various injuries. A Colombian experiences his last days at Los Blancos in the worst possible way, with his desire behind closed doors after a hectic season. Zidane is tired of James, and James is tired of Zidane. It’s hard to understand a Colombian’s career. He is the proper No.10 with one of the best-left boots in the world, who appeared at Real Madrid as a star after impressing at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil. In the first few months, he lived up to expectations. It seemed that Real had their No.10 for many years to come. No one could imagine the subsequent fall.
The problem may lie more in his head than in his feet
His performances ceased over time. Of the player with a scoring threat, talent, and inspiration, only his famous left foot remained, which is not enough for a palate like the Estadio Santiago Bernabeu, which appreciates quality as much as effort. His physical condition worsened, and relations with fans and managers too. Rodriguez left Madrid for Bayern Munich – another club where you have to be on top every week. The maximum demand is not suitable for the contract. Zidane seemingly has a taste for aesthetics and quality. James must be missing something if such a coach does not include him in his plans for the decisive part of the season. The Colombian recently disappeared for the game at San Mames. Luckily for him, the Bernabeu is not currently welcoming fans.
It is hard to think that a player of his quality, still only 28 years old, is not enough to start an elite team. His left boot is still intact, but that’s not enough at the highest level. His problem may lie more in the head than in his feet. If James even revives his career, then at Real, this certainly will not be.
