Cafu: James will be sensational for Everton

World Cup winner Marcos Cafu is backing James Rodriguez to be a star with Everton.

Rodriguez has already impressed in two matches since arriving at Everton and opened his goals account in the 5-2 win over West Brom last weekend.

Cafu told The Sun: “I saw James Rodriguez play for the Colombian national team.

“I saw him play for Real Madrid and for Bayern, too.

“For me he's a fantastic player, a sensational player, intelligent, a player, who, if you let him play the way he likes, for sure, he'll do a lot for the Premier League.

“He'll be a guy, who if you let him play, he'll stand out. They will see the true value he has for the Championship."
