ROD FOR HIS BACK
Everton outcast James Rodriguez admitted he doesn’t even know who the club play next as he awaits a transfer.
The 30-year-old’s time at Goodison Park is all but over after reportedly being told he’s not in manager Rafa Benitez’s plans.
And the disillusioned Colombian star revealed he’s not even sure of Everton’s fixture list as he lines up a summer exit.
Rodriguez missed the opening day victory over Southampton due to Covid isolation and is ready to return this week. But he made an alarming admission on his Twitch stream.
The 30-year-old said: “I will start training on Monday, I think. On the weekend I will not play, I don’t even know who Everton is playing, can you please tell me? I think it is away because the past was here at home.”
He later added: “Ah, against Leeds they play, away from home, against (Marcelo) Bielsa, a difficult game, let’s see what happens, hopefully they win.
“I have faith that this season will be good for me, big things are coming for me. Between now and August 30, anything can happen, I don’t know where I’ll play, I’ll be where things go well.”
Speaking on Friday in his press conference, manager Benitez said: “Until August 31, he (James) is part of my plans.”
