James in message to Real boss Zidane: "I hope to play more"
The Real Madrid man made plain his intentions for next season in a TV interview in which he also discussed his highs and lows with Colombia.
Real Madrid's James Rodríguez signalled his intentions to club boss Zinedine Zidane as he looked ahead to the coming campaign in a television interview aired in his native Colombia.
"I hope to be able to play more"
After an impressive opening year at Real, James often found himself on the bench during a disappointing season last term, and Zidane is said to have doubts over his first-team role.
However, he told Caracol TV: "I hope to be able to play more".
James has been heavily linked with a move this summer but, with Los Blancos understood to have rejected an 85-million-euro bid for the player, he explained to AS on Friday that he plans to remain at Real.
And he added on Caracol TV: "I want to have a good season and perform to a high level."
"I cried for five hours"
The 25-year-old also talked over the highlights and lowlights of his Colombia career so far, declaring: "My best goal was the one against Uruguay [at the 2014 World Cup].
"My worst moment was being knocked out by Brazil at the World Cup. I cried for five hours."
James is scheduled to join Madrid's pre-season preparations in Canada on Tuesday.
