Speaking after the Champions League final which saw Real Madrid beat city rivals Atlético 5-3 in a penalty shoot-out after a tight 1-1 scoreline AET, the Colombian midfielder, James Rodriguez, gave some quick but clear answers on the following:

Being champions: “Happy. Everyone had a big game and it’s all worked out in the end.”

Strange season: “A bit strange but when you have bad times you also learn from them. Each day I learn more.”

James kisses the trophy and hopes to be staying with Real Madrid.

Staying with Madrid: “In football you never know but I want to continue here and my idea is to have many more years with the club.”

What’s lacking: “I don’t know but I have to leave this behind and think about what is ahead of me.”

James looks to the skies after more disappointment.

Confidence: “I am happy here. All the people close to me are happy too. It’s the ideal club and I want to be here.”
