It is still too early to conclude about Everton in the Premier League season 2020/21, but the Merseyside representative is becoming more worth watching thanks to James Rodriguez in the squad.
Rodriguez reunited with coach (coach) Carlo Ancelotti at Everton for a month, but midfielder Colombia stormed England. In 30 days, the former Real star made those who doubted him have to look again.
Everton is flourishing in the Premier League
Rodriguez became one of the important factors to help Merseyside’s representatives fly high. Not many people believe Everton owns such a quality midfielder for 25 million euros. Everton seems to have a big profit, and Real can have a big deal. Rodriguez is worth more than 25 million euros of the transfer.
With just a month on Merseyside, Rodriguez owned a record he took a year to get at Madrid. After 5 matches in the land of fog, the Colombian midfielder scored 3 goals and had 3 assists (according to WhoScored data).
Rodriguez is having a dream start at Everton. Marca calls the midfielder “king of South America”, who stands above Lionel Messi and Luis Suarez, currently. The number of goals and assists the former Real star has so far says it all.
Messi started the 2020/21 season with a goal and had no assists after three matches with Barca. Luis Suarez has 2 goals and one assist for Atletico. Neymar has a record equal to Suarez in PSG, while Alexis Sanchez has only two clear lines at Inter.
Rodriguez’s value is not just in statistics
The midfielder also created a great influence on his image and brought confidence to Everton. In the eyes of fans, Rodriguez is a normal rookie, if not to say “waste goods” from Real. However, remember the Colombian midfielder has won many noble titles such as the Champions League, the La Liga, and the Bundesliga championship.
Rodriguez arrived on Merseyside as one of world football’s brightest stars, who delivered a positive signal and showed fans, Everton, on the right track on the way to challenge the giants in the Premier League.
Rodriguez and coach Ancelotti were born for each other. And only when standing on the same frontline can they shine. At Real, the Colombian midfielder is not a favorite card of coach Zinedine Zidane. That made him slip. When he moved to Everton, where Rodriguez reunited with coach Ancelotti, the attacking midfielder shone again.
