Rodallega struck the winner against Norwich City on Saturday.
He said: "Yes [I thought I may have to leave], when you haven't been playing for five or six games after the West Brom game it's difficult. I felt bad.
"At the moment I feel very good because when I have this opportunity I've played very well. Everybody in the team is pushing me, and that's very important."
