James Rodríguez, with work and sacrifice on the field, has won over Jupp Heynckes. The man who replaced Carlo Ancelotti relies on the Colombian now as a regular starter after a difficult adaption period to life in the Bundesliga. 

Speaking to Caracol, James dived into life at Bayern and whether he will return to Real Madrid and spoke about Ronaldo's comments about the departures in the summer, James, Pepe and Morata, making los Blancos weaker.

His position in central midfielder for Bayern: "I played their before for Madrid with Ancelotti and Zidane. Back then, it was Kroos, Modric and me and now I am playing with Javi Martinez and Vidal. In that line, I can do good things and create more. It is good to get to play six games in a row and that much time is a massive for me. Pékerman wants me to play a little further forward, as a second striker or wide left but I feel comfortable in different positions."

The declaration by Cristiano about the exit of James, Morata and Pepe: "They were going through a tough moment and you say things that you shouldn't sometimes. I believe that Real Madrid have very good players to have a really good campaign. They are a massive team, they have a team with the power to change everything. I left lots of really good teammates and friends in Madrid and I always watch them when I can. I keep in touch with Ramos, Benzema and Marcelo." 

A return to Real Madrid: "I don't know. For now, I am thinking about Bayern Munich. I have two years left here, I am doing well here and I am happy."

Learning the language: "I am learning little bits but it's so hard. I dedicate one hour a day to learning and there are five people in the team who speak Spanish and the manager too. With Lewandowski, I speak English, a strange kind of English. All of my teammates are lovely and good people, it is a healthy group. The Germans are a little serious, the ones who mess around the most and the South Americans."
