"James is not going to play in Madrid or with the 24 injured"
"The only problem i see is that the coach doesn't want him and when the coach doesn't want him, who knows when he's next going to play? Not even when there are 24 injured", stated the ex-footballer in an interview for 'FOX Sports'.
In this sense, Valderrama wanted to emphasise and underline in his speech Rodríguez's career moment: "If James is old, we are screwed. Now is the best time for him".
The ex-footballer is the lastest to join the surge of critics of Zinedine Zidane, who has been treating the number 10 unfairly.
However, according to a report published by 'AS' , the Frenchman is being required to rethink James Rodriguez future, as well as Gareth Bale's - who is also not a part of his plans, in the absence of exit offers.
