'James Doesn't Have Character'

'James Rodriguez Doesn't Have Character'

By Kurt Buckerfield - Jul 12, 2017 10:42 AM @KurtLaduma

A former Real Madrid superstar has hit out at James Rodriguez, who joined Bayern Munich on Tuesday, insisting the Colombian was too soft to make it at Los Blancos.

Messi The First Footballer To Earn These Wages?

The Bavarians announced the signing of Rodriguez on a two-year loan deal on Tuesday afternoon, after a season in which he struggled to break into Zinedine Zidane’s strongest team.

Hugo Sanchez, who represented Real from 1985 to 1992, has questioned the player’s mental strength, suggesting he might not have had the character to make a real impact in Spain.

"James needed to prove to Zidane that he can trust him in every game, not just the one but also the next one," Sanchez told Radio MARCA.

"One's character has to harden and that's what James was missing.

"To play for Real Madrid, you have to put a little more in."

Rodriguez represented Real on 111 occasions, scoring 36 goals and assisting a further 41 strikes.

Do you consider the Colombian a flop signing at Real? Let us know in the comments section below.

You guyz don't kniw football maan. Sanchez is telking the truth. Hamez is just like Oezil,they prefer a coach who will put them on the field no matter what. Not work everyday for that position. His night life got in the way of his hunger n needed a baby sitter. Real is the biggest team un the World. A coach will be fired while nursing someone's ego.

ayisuka the guy putted a good performance Zidane never liked the guy, he never gave him a chance, infect he should have left Real for good , he is a good player and many teams(big) will be keen to sign him.

James is three times more than Benzema, so I wonder what do you mean by saying he was soft and lack hunger to play on next game ? go well boi Zidane did not want you to bypass his personal standard at real

I agree and disagree.... He was bought to play not to "prove himself" and I've never seen him having a bad game...

I couldn't agree more with Hugo.his assessment of James performance is brutal but honest.James never stepped on the gas and never looked back.we all know he's a quality player but he never lived to expectations.maybe a change of environment could help him rekindle his form.

If someone comes out to say James was soft. How many games did he play and how many goals and assists is he having. Zidane bought you to talk that nonsense

What character is this stupid talking about. That boy is better than a lot of players left at Real Madrid that is for sure. But Zidane opted for his favourite than football players
