The Colombian said he cannot guarantee
he will remain at Real beyond January,
much to the disappointment of his team-
mate
Real Madrid captain Sergio Ramos
questioned the timing of comments made
by team-mate James Rodriguez, who said
he is open to leaving the European
champions.
After Madrid were crowned World
champions on Sunday, James – an unused
substitute in the 4-2 Club World Cup final
win over Kashima Antlers – said he cannot
guarantee he will remain at the Santiago
Bernabeu beyond the January transfer
window.
Another day, another record for Ronaldo
James has struggled to cement himself in
Zinedine Zidane’s starting XI, but Ramos
was not happy with the Colombia
international’s remarks.
“It’s not a day for personal issues,” Ramos
said.
“I hold him in high regard and I hope he
stays. But today wasn’t a day to focus on
other matters.”
Cristiano Ronaldo scored a hat-trick as
Madrid outlasted the Japanese outfit after
extra time.

Karim Benzema opened the scoring in a
thrilling match, where Ramos was lucky to
avoid being sent off in the dying stages of
the second half.
“The first one I didn’t think I would get but
the second one, I was happy to have my
luck changing a little as the referees were
on my side there,” added Ramos.
“It was a difficult game against a
complicated team. They made us suffer
and we had to show a lot of intensity and
take advantage of the chances that came
our way.
“We are all very proud to have closed the
year out with another title and it is nice
for us to add another trophy.”
