James will succeed at Bayern – Heynckes

Jupp Heynckes understand it is ‘difficult’ for James Rodriguez to adapt to life in Germany but he believes the Colombian will thrive.

The 26-year-old joined Bayern on a two-season long loan from Real Madrid this summer but has started only one Bundesliga match to date.

“My ideas on James are clear,” Heynckes to his press conference.

“I've watched James in many games and I know a lot about him, although not on a personal level and when he returns from international duty I will speak to him and see what advice I can give.

“James cannot speak German and it’s a very different style of play here than in South America…the language, mentality and culture are all different.

“That can make it difficult for young players but I know I can help him because I like players with talent and he has a lot of it.”
