Ex-Real Madrid head coach Vicente Del Bosque has some sympathy for James Rodriguez.
The Colombia international midfielder remains limited to a bench role under Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane.
“I’m not in Real Madrid, and I do not know much about the inside of the club, but James is a great player and the coach has a lot of competition,” Del Bosque told Radio Caracol.
“It is very difficult to select all these excellent players. The problem is the enormous technical quality of many players in the team. They are all very good and everyone can play.
