After months of speculation that Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane wanted to sell James Rodriguez, the Colombian star has now revealed the truth behind their relationship.
The 25-year-old marked his return to his team's starting XI with a goal on Sunday, when the Spanish giants beat Espanyol 2-0 away from home.
After the match, Rodriguez described his boss Zinedine Zidane as his "idol", and also made it clear that he wants to stay at the Santiago Bernabeu for as long as possible.
"Zidane is my idol. Real Madrid is my dream, I hope it lasts much more time," Rodriguez told journalists, as quoted by FourFourTwo.
"My family and I are very happy in Madrid and in the team. I will fight to stay here forever.
"It's not true that I've had a bad time. Me not speaking (to the public) doesn't mean I have a bad relationship with anyone.
"We are united as a team and everyone has supported me here since the first day. We want more wins and more records.
"I understand the coach's decisions. He knows I always want to help the team, not just with goals and assists."
Rodriguez has made five appearances in all competitions for the 11-time UEFA Champions League winners this season, scoring one goal and assisting a further two strikes.
