Bayern Munich have confirmed the departure of James Rodriguez following the end of his two-year spell. The Colombian joined Bayern on loan from Real Madrid in 2017. In his first season, James scored 8 goals and provided 14 assists in 39 appearances across all competitions.
This season however, hasn’t been as good as the last one with the Colombian scoring 7 goals and 6 assists in 23 appearances across all competitions.
On his departure, James said, “I’d like to say a big thank you to the whole club and all the fans who have always given us tremendous support. I had two unforgettable years in Munich and I always really felt at home here. I will have great memories and I wish FC Bayern all the best in the future.”
Bayern legend and CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said, “On behalf of FC Bayern München, I’d like to thank James for two successful years at the club. We’ve won the German league title and the DFB Cup twice with him. Beyond that, we reached the semi-finals of the Champions League with him. James made an important contribution to all these successes.”
