Fall of World Cup top scorer. Advancement to the Middle East → Contempt for being eliminated from the national team → Termination of the contract with the affiliated team. Colombia’s former ace with nowhere to go
The Colombian ace at the 2014 World Cup in Brazil was James Rodriguez (31). His sensuous left foot volley shocked the world.
He took Colombia to the quarterfinals and was the top scorer with six goals. His share price, playing for AS Monaco, has skyrocketed. He moved to Real Madrid right away and took over as a starter.
In the 2014-2015 season, he recorded 17 goals and 18 assists in 46 games, and was the most outstanding Real Madrid player. He scored 13 goals and provided 13 assists in 28 appearances in 29 La Liga matches.
However, he has a weakness in speed and was pushed out of the main competition from the next season. He was poorly given his chances under manager Zinedine Zidane. In the end, he was loaned to Bayern Munich in 2017.
Rodriguez’ form was fine at Bayern Munich, which was aiming for a revival. His performance during his two years was compliant. However, he was forced to return to Real Madrid after completing a two-year loan. The problem was that there was no place to play here. 메이저사이트
Eventually, in 2020, he moved from Real Madrid to Everton in the English Premier League. He was strong at the beginning of the season, but has been hampered by an injury. The following season, when coach Rafael Benítez took over the helm, he was left out of the team again this time.
Then he chose the destination to the Middle East. He moved to Qatar’s prestigious Al Rayyan team, and last year he moved again to Greece’s prestigious Olympiacos. At that time, Hwang In-beom and Hwang Eui-jo became teammates. However, after six months of the contract, Olympiacos again terminated the contract with Rodriguez.
The Liverpool Echo reported on the 14th (Korean time) that ‘World Cup top scorer James Rodriguez’ contract with Olympiacos has expired’. In the process of moving the team from Everton → Al Rayyan → Olympiacos, he was humiliated by being excluded from the Colombian national team. He needs to find his next destination, but Europe’s top clubs are no longer interested in him. It is the downfall of the bitter World Cup scorer.
