The Columbian star looks to stay at Bayern Munich for another year
James Rodriguez, the 2014 Word cup Golden boot winner, joined the German club last year on a two-year long loan deal from Real Madrid. Bayern paid Real Madrid €13 million as a loan fee for the two season-long loan.
The player is still on after-World-cup vacation and but the player is taking part in promotional events and will join the rest of the team when they head back to Munich for their first training session. The player looked eager to meet the new manager and listen to what the manager has planned for him as he want to help the Bundesliga Champion in winning another title.
In talks with the media repoters, the Bayern Munich player said, “I think my future is here, there are a lot of rumors, they talk about a lot of clubs, but right now I’m thinking about Bayern Munich. That’s my present, and I’m happy here.”
The player also admitted to make his Bayern stay a bit longer. He said, “Yeah, why not? Bayern is a big club, a top club also. I’m good here, and why not stay here for years. If they want me to be here, I’ll be thankful with them because it’s a club that put its confidence in me, so I feel all their love. Why not stay here for years? I think it’s a good option.”
The player has represented the German side in 38 games and was 8 times on the scoring sheets. He was happy to join the Bundesliga and has shared his tilll date experience with the club.
“It’s a good league and you’re always playing in full stadiums. It’s a league that also has good atmospheres,” he said. “I think it’s a league I’ve enjoyed a lot.
“I thought it was going to be a bit bad or worse, but it’s good, it has a good level. I say that because the Bundesliga isn’t watched much outside the country, and so when you’re inside it you see it in another way. I think it’s a good league – and for me it’s a top league.”
The player continued to talk about his bad experience in the World cup held in Russia. He said, “It’s tough. You feel a bit frustrated because you wait four years to be good, to be able to give everything. To only be able to play one (full) game is tough, but all this is part of everything else, so you have to stay strong. I can think that not everything is good, so you have to be prepared for everything and be calm when bad things happen.”
The player and the German team will be ready to face Eintracht Frankfurt, in Aug. 12’s Super Cup before opening Bundesliga play against Hoffenheim on Aug. 24.
