After failing to secure a move elsewhere before the start of the 2019/2020 season, Rodriguez has found himself struggling to get regular game time this season.

While the Colombian has made just 13 appearances all campaign, Carlos feels Rodriguez is still an important part of the Los Blancos set up.

"Zidane has a lot of respect for James," Carlos told BLU Radio.

"He makes lots of rotations and whenever James comes on he always does well.

"The most important thing now is that he keeps on training as well as he has been and that he maintains the confidence he has in himself.

"The fans love him.

"To tell you the truth, I care for him and, whenever I see him, I give him a big hug. He has done so much for this club and even more for his country."
