Pundit v Rodriguez makes a new deal
Posted On May 5, 2021
In an exclusive interview with Football FanCast, Rob Lee, who has made 280 Premier League appearances, insists James Rodriguez does not deserve a new contract at Everton after failing to impress this season.
There are reports that the Toffees are ready to offer the former Real Madrid midfielder a new deal to keep him at Goodison Park, even though he joined the club last year.
Does Rodriguez deserve a new contract?
Rodriguez signed as a free agent last summer, but injuries did not allow him to demonstrate his talent constantly – although he still managed to score six goals and record nine assists. However, given the player’s profile, you could understand why some may feel that the Colombian does not have a breathtaking season.
Speaking about why Rodriguez doesn’t deserve a new contract and why a new deal doesn’t make sense for Everton, Lee said FFC:
“He is only were there a year so I do not knowing why they will give him a new contract and there will be many clubs wanting him after on season he had? З.e were really good sometimes and then no great other times.
“I do not I understand football clubs, but he is obviously a a lot good player. If I was at the club ID be telling him to play well after that season and we reward You with new contract. “
Carlo Ancelotti has signed the midfielder for £ 90,000 a week for Bayern Munich and Real Madrid, so he clearly trusts the player to produce on the pitch and get the job done.
Everton are still fighting for a European place, but it will probably be only a place in the Europa League, as their form weakened in the second half of the season after winning only one home league match since the beginning of the year.
