Everton Superstar Going NowhereBy Ryan G • Feb 22nd, 2021 • Category: News |
Everton midfielder James Rodriguez has quashed rumours he wants to leave the club.
The 29-year-old superstar has been a revelation since joining the club on a free transfer, with 5 goals and 8 assists already this term, including the key assist for Richarlison’s goal against Liverpool in their Merseyside Derby success.
Reports last week suggested the World Cup Golden Boot winner was unhappy at The Toffees and wanted to return to Spain.
However in a recent interview with Marca the Colombian midfielder expressed his delight at victory of Liverpool and general happiness at the club.
“I am happy. We all know it is a new stage for me.
“At almost 30 years old, I am fine. I am happy for every new thing that is added to my life. It all adds up.
“It was tough [against Liverpool]. Everyone knows that Liverpool is a great team. I think they are in the top three teams of those who play good football.
“I’m happy to have helped my team win. Everton haven’t won [at Anfield] since 1999, so we’ve made history.
“I’m happy I was there. I hope we can continue this well.”
