James Rodriguez English press conference

“I can remember back to the time of Zidane, Ronaldo and Roberto Carlos. I would have been 10 or 11 and was always a Real Madrid fan. It was a team I always followed and I have always dreamed about playing here. I fought hard and suffered a lot. When there is hard work involved, success tastes even sweeter. All I have to do now is be happy here and work hard in order to carve out a place for myself on the team”.

“I have come to Real Madrid to make history and win titles. It is a club that is used to winning and I am mentally and physically prepared to face this challenge. I dream about scoring a lot of goals. I also want to contribute with my passes and with goals because that is the best thing for the team. My aim is always to win. I don’t like losing and this is the ideal club in order to always be a winner”.
