Only a footballer understands what another footballer is going through during his tough days, and James Rodrigues has found a friend and advisor in the form of his international team mate, Radamel Falcao.
James has had a frustrating 2016 to say the least, and things seem far from getting any better for the talented Colombian under Zidane’s reign. The midfielder has only managed to appear a mere 13 times this season, and has hardly had the chance to play out the full 90 minutes.
With such talent, promise, and the advantage of being so young, Rodriguez is likely to start getting frustrated and seek a way out of the Bernabeu if things continue to remain this way.

However, during such tough times, he seems to have recently gotten support and words of wisdom from his friend and international team mate, Radamel Falcao.
Falcao, who endured terrible spells with Manchester United and Chelsea, has claimed to know exactly how James feels warming the bench every match, and what the young player must be going through every weekend. ‘El Tigre’ further claimed the fact that it is normal for footballers to wish to play every match, but in a situation like this, and with a player of such stature, the lesser the game time, the more the unhappiness.
James has been linked with moves to Old Trafford as well as Stamford Bridge in the month of January, and considering how things are shaping up at his current club, such a move might be the next best thing to happen to him.
He showed everyone what he is capable of in the 2014 World Cup, and after fading out in the favourite ranks in the eyes of the Madrid Manager, James will be keen to get a platform to showcase what the world has been missing, and why he deserves to play more than he does.
