James Rodriguez is going through a rough patch at Real Madrid and that could affect him with the Colombian national team too.

James Rodriguez is having a difficult season at Real Madrid and Colombia coach Carlos Queiroz is worried ahead of this summer’s Copa America.

The talented playmaker only just returned from a two-year loan deal at Bayern Munich and has so far struggled for minutes under Zidane.

This season, the 28-year-old has barely seen game-time, scoring once and providing one assist.

Lately, reports have claimed James Rodriguez will struggle for a spot with the Colombia team and head coach Queiroz has indirectly confirmed that.

“All I can say is that we, at the FCF (Colombian Football Federation), take care to look after all of our players,” Queiroz told EFE via Goal.

“James’s situation is worrying for us. We know that he is in a difficult situation at this moment in time, it’s a situation which technically and professionally isn’t the best.

Queiroz is still however hopeful the midfielder can re-discover his form soon enough and lead his team who host the Copa America alongside Argentina.
