James: I know I'll be on bench at Real Madrid

James Rodriguez insists he accepts his role at Real Madrid.

The attacker scored in victory at Espanyol on Sunday.

He said: "You've got to realise that there are a lot of us and the gaffer is the one who calls the shots.

"You always try to train and play well, but you've got to be relaxed and the most important thing is that this season I'm feeling good. I want to help us to all win. I accept having to sit on the bench because there are a lot of players and also I recognise that if you start you've got to perform."
