The Manchester United fans in the Transfer Tavern need some cheering up. Three losses on the bounce are threatening to kill the optimism picked up after their blockbuster summer.
After the Hornets stung the Red Devils yesterday, quotes emerging from Spain have served as a further blow.
Cited from Football Espana, Real Madrid manager Zinedine Zidane has poured cold water over rumours linking superstar playmaker James Rodriguez with a move to Old Trafford.
Ahead of their eventual victory at Espanyol yesterday, the Los Blancos coach had revealed the 25-year-old remains a big part of his plans in the Spanish capital.
Amid the vast array of attacking talent available to the Champions League winners, the former Monaco and Porto man has often been the odd man out.
“I’ve said two or three times that he’s training very well and James is going to play, he’s important for the team,” said the World Cup winner.
“I see him to be very well, the same as last season. I won’t say he’s any different. He just wants to play like everyone else and is going to offer us what he has.”
