‘James needs continuity’

Zinedine Zidane addressed rumours Real Madrid will sell James Rodriguez by confirming he had spoken to the midfielder and ‘he needs continuity.’

The Spanish Press claimed James and Isco will be made available this summer by Los Blancos and the Coach was asked about the situation at his pre-Levante Press conference.

“I have spoken with James but that isn’t the issue. He does his job to the maximum, but there are times when he forgets things, which is something I know because I was a player,” Marca quotes Zidane as saying.

“What James needs is more continuity, not just him but the entire team. We’re all in the same boat and no one is going to jump.

“As long as I’m the Coach we’ll always fight.”
