Colombian legend Tino Asprilla has weighed into James Rodriguez’s situation at Real Madrid.
James has been linked with Manchester United and Chelsea after being jeered by Real fans this season and falling out with coach Zinedine Zidane.
“It’s not that James performs better for the Colombian national team than Real Madrid, but in Colombia they give him the sense they need a player of his characteristics,” Asprilla told Marca.
“In Real Madrid they give him the sense that he’s not needed.
“He is a young guy with a lot of talent, but James does not receive the love he needs from his club. When (Carlo) Ancelotti was there, you saw the player’s true value.”
