Benítez talks about James Rodríguez’s status at Everton before Villa


Benítez talks about James Rodríguez's status at Everton before Villa

Everton manager Rafael Benitez on Thursday provided insight into the state of midfield talent James Rodriguez.

James the outcast

Colombian international Rodríguez, of course, has proven to be a forgotten man in the blue half of Merseyside so far this season.

As the Toffees progressed to an impressive 10 points of 12 in their first four games, Rodriguez watched from home, in the middle of another crossroads in a career that has so many times been flattered to deceive.

The key factor behind James’ latest struggles comes in the form of the bench change at Goodison Park this summer.

After Carlo Ancelotti, the man who previously oversaw some of the best forms of the midfielder’s career, chose to allow time for his stint with the Blues to seal his return to Real Madrid, Rafael Benítez soon took his place.

AND reportsIn turn, it quickly began to come to light that the Spaniard, unlike his predecessor, saw little room for Rodriguez in his setup.

‘We will see…’

Last week, however, he saw the 30-year-old, for the first time, training alongside the rest of Benítez’s team at Finch Farm.

So it came as no surprise when, during a press conference ahead of his team’s meeting with Aston Villa this weekend, the Everton manager was asked for an update on James’ situation.

And Benítez went on to confirm that the former Bayern Munich player is ‘training normally’, even hinting at the possibility of a seasonal bow at Villa Park on Saturday night:

“ He’s training, and these kinds of weeks where you’re playing and you have a day off in between is not easy to see in the first training session. We’ll see him tomorrow, but he’s training normally with the team. ‘
