FC Barcelona midfielder Arturo Vidal says he feels sorry for James Rodriguez‘s situation at Real Madrid. The Colombian has barley played for the Spanish giants since his return from a two-year loan spell at Bayern Munich and he has been frozen out of the first team after the corona virus lockdown was lifted in June.
“James and I are brothers, we forged an incredible friendship in Munich,” the Barcelona man told Win Sports. “We talk all the time, on holiday we did and it’s annoying that he has problems with the coach. James has a high level to play as a starter for that team and I don’t know why they didn’t give him a chance this year.”
The Chilean powerhouse hopes that his friend will be completing a summer move as that is the only possible solution for James. “I hope he takes the best decision and begins to play,” he added. “I think people, football admirers, love to see quality players and James is one of them. He has to grow, search for his future and find a place to play and enjoy football.”
