James Rodriguez has hit out at accusations he is unprofessional and addressed speculation about his future at Real Madrid, with Chelsea interested in a deal.
There has been alot of transfer speculation in the media over the past few months which have suggested that we are interested in nailing down the services of Rodriguez in the summer window.
Now, amid all the speculation, Rodriguez has opened up about all the rumours and the claims that he has not been professional enough, In an interview with TV programme Gol Caracol, he said: “It’s always uncomfortable to listen to the many lies that are said about someone, what’s important is the opinion of my family and those who know me.
“Anyway, it’s something that doesn’t affect me because I know what’s true and I work hard every day to be where I am. Those who surround me are always happy with what I have to offer.
“A lot of things have been said about me and almost all of them are lies. What most annoys me is that my professionalism has been put in doubt, and I can’t accept that.
“There never was any problem [with Zidane]. Every manager has a different taste. We have a normal working relationship. In the future you never know what’s going to happen, but if they let me choose, I would pick a club where I could show my abilities and my conditions.”
Is he really worth bringing to the club, do we need him?
