​Everton signing James names top five players he's played with

Everton signing James Rodriguez has spoken about the top five players he has played with in his career.

The Colombian arrives at Goodison Park with a huge reputation as one of the best in the world.

Asked about some of his best teammates, Rodriguez had a lot to say.

"Okay. Cristiano for his desire to always win, and because he is a goal machine," he told Manchester United legend Rio Ferdinand's FIVE show.

"Frank Ribery, he is an amazing player, of course, I played with him when I was older, but I've never seen anyone with such spectacular skills, he's incredible!

"The other player...There are many. I can name Arjen Robben, too, he has a very good left foot, he was amazing, he always did what he wanted to do, when he'd go in shoot, he was a sight to see, honestly, he was extraordinary.

"Another player I liked...What I can tell you? Benzema! He was a very different number nine, because he scores, he plays, he has great passing skills, and he has an incredible finalisation technique.

"And the five...One defender, Sergio Ramos, he's good; he's good, he scores goals.He is always in the finals, so I chose Ramos."
