“You have to show some respect!,” Asprilla began in a chat with ‘Blu Radio’, before saying “James has unbelievable patience… I would have told him to “eat s**t” a long time back,” the former player said. That caused the others in the studio to start laughing.
After two years on loan at Bayern, James returned to Real Madrid motivated and Zidane gave him minutes at the start of the campaign. However, he has played just 651 minutes in 13 appearances during 2019-20. He has scored just one goal and given two assists.
