Lothar Matthaus blasts James Rodriguez attitude

Bayern Munich legend Lothar Matthaus has ripped into the attitude of James Rodriguez, currently on loan at the Bavarians from Real Madrid.

The Colombian playmaker is in the second year of a two-season long loan deal at the German champions but he is reportedly unhappy at a lack of playing time.

“Bayern have too many players only interested in themselves,” Matthaus said, in quotes cited by Spanish media.

“He (James) is one of the players who place their individual importance above the club, then they complain when they are not playing enough.

“It is egotistical and it is disrespectful in respect to his Coach, his club and his teammates, he cannot react angrily because Kovac does not put his arm around him like Heyneckes did.”
