“I was at Everton for a year but I would have liked it to be longer…it went well, very well, I’m leaving due to a coach, because if not, I would stay. The coach [Benítez] told me on the first day of preseason ‘you are old, you are already 30 years old, I prefer to have young people, with energy. So, find yourself a club’. I told a leader, after three months he will be out, I have already worked with him,” says James Rodriguez. [CaughtOffside via Caracol Radio]
