James Rodriguez should quit Real Madrid for Atletico Madrid, Javier Restrepo has said.
Javier recently said James moving to Atletico would make sense because he needs a coach who believes in him.
According to him, Rodriguez is an amazing footballer who has had a difficult time but the talent is evidently there.
He added that the Colombian is still very young to continue unlocking all the potential he has
His words, “James is a great player who has had a difficult time, what they say about him, what they speculate is something that is not very positive, but talent is always there.
“If he goes and he is with a coach who confides in him, who trusts him, he will be able to act normally.
“He has been around for many years and knows what is at stake.
“If he appreciates the opportunity he has, or continues on his way, he is still young enough to continue unlocking all the potential he has.
“I’d like to see him at that club [Atetico]. Apart from what they are as a team, he would be with a demanding and winning coach who could further enhance the characteristics that James has.
“He has been in Europe for many years and joining Atletico would be important . What he needs is to play, to have confidence again, to quieten so many things that are said about him off the field and dedicate himself only to playing.
“If you have the support of a coach, of a club that opens doors for you, that gives you the opportunity to play, which is what you need. A player without competition is not the same. If this happens and he takes advantage of that opportunity, it could be very important for him.”
