Many Everton fans have been left fuming as some comments emerges from James Rodriguez.
Speaking on his Twitch channel (via Toffee TV), the Colombia international said: “They’re asking me where I’m going to play. I don’t know. I don’t know yet. It’s complicated. Wherever I’m wanted. Someone has to be at a place they’re wanted.”
Should Everton have kept Rodriguez?
It has recently been reported that Rafa Benitez “doesn’t count” on Rodriguez and so the former Real Madrid star could be heading through the exit door at Goodison Park after just one season.
Rodriguez was a key player for the Toffees in the 2020/21 campaign, scoring six goals and supplying a further nine assists in 26 matches in total across all competitions (Transfermarkt), and so would be sorely missed should he make a move away from the Merseyside club.
Nonetheless, his latest comments suggest that he may not be wanted at the Blues, which could be an indication that he will leave before the summer transfer window shuts.
Everton fans on Rodriguez comments
These EFC supporters fumed as the comments were shared across Twitter, with one Evertonian even going as far as to claim that they were ‘insane’:
“Sad day when a player of his calibre isn’t wanted at a joke club like @Everton”
“Sigh! How can a player like him be unwanted? Jeez!”
“All down to Benitez, they’ve got history. Our only real top quality player and he wants him gone but he’ll keep Iwobi. Insane.”
“Unbelievable dreading this season”
“We are a shambles. We act like were run by kids!”
“Genuinely makes me sick to think James Rodriguez wants to stay and we’re forcing him out, this club will never learn”
