James Rodriguez shines again in the Real Madrid. Remember that of 2014. That summer, the Colombian landed in the Santiago Bernabeu in exchange for 80 million euros after being the revelation star of the Brazil World Cup. Five years later he falls in love again with the white colosseum after a break of years in Germany, which gives the impression that it has never happened. The best James convinces and shines in this initial stretch of the season.
He was a starter in the second game of Madrid at home after the summer. If he already left good feelings in the match against him Valladolid -which he ended up injured-, he has finished convincing them in this Saturday's meeting against the I raised. He played 90 minutes and went from less to more. At rest, the game was already his.
James showed that he can be a differential player in this Madrid, a quality that was greatly missed in the capital last year. Almost unintentionally, he is the best white signing – with the permission of a Hazard that shone during the half hour he had on his debut. But beyond his talent, well known, James is leaving the skin on the field in each game. He wants to succeed and is convinced that this may be his best year at Real Madrid.
Zidane's impression of James has taken a nearly 180 degree turn in these first weeks of competition. At the beginning of the summer he preferred that his future be defined before having it again at his command. There was also talk of the Colombian's march to Atlético de Madrid, but the club refused. In the end, without Pogba neither NeymarJames stayed and is making it clear that it was a wise decision on the part of Madrid.
Time does not seem to have passed for James, who understands equally well with Kroos or Benzema as it was three years ago. Therefore, doubts begin to arise in a Zidane that has buried the ax of war with his player, who has no problem praising in public. “You can tell James is very good,” he said at a press conference after the game against Levante. But can James take a place in the eleven gala?
A turn to eleven gala
James may be a key player behind the attack trident that presumably will be for Bale, Benzema and Hazard in the big days. The coffee player has the ability to be the hitch devised between a double pivot, consisting of Casemiro and Kroos, and the three above. The sacrificed would be Modric, although the Croatian will reduce his party mass even more this season.
Madrid was looking for fresh air in the market and James can give it to him. There is no other like him on the team and if he ends up getting along with Hazard – as you could see this Saturday – both can give that team a stir to return to be competitive and fight this season for everything.
