“Go back to Everton one day? Of course I would go back to Everton. It’s a spectacular club with incredible fans, but I found a coach [Rafa Benitez] who didn’t want to count on me. I wanted to stay there but the manager didn’t want to count on me. Until the last day I was super-professional and I trained to the fullest. I wanted to be remembered as I am, a good person and a great professional. It was the coach’s decision. Some people love you and others don’t, you have to respect that,” says James Rodriguez.
