Colombia coach Maturana calls on James to settle Real Madrid future

Colombia coach Francisco Maturana has called on James Rodriguez to sort out his future at Real Madrid.

The midfielder looks likely to leave Real Madrid this summer with Manchester United a possible destination.

"James and his entourage are the ones who need to solve their issues," Maturana told A La Contra.

"I will always take the side of the coach, because a coach must respect his fellow coaches and the profession.

"We all want to win and if I have a player who will help me win then I will select him, but in Colombia it is thought that every coach who doesn't select James is bad."
