Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane made a beeline for James Rodriguez after victory at Osasuna.

The Colombia international was impressive on Saturday - much to the pleasure of Zidane.

It was Zidane who convinced James to stay with Real during the January market and was delighted to have his efforts repaid at Osasuna.

Don Balon says the coach pulled James aside to congratulate him on his performance and urged him to continue giving his best in training as the chances will come.

"James has this reassurance to make others play and I am happy," Zidane said in his post-match presser.
