Real Madrid coach Zidane won't rule out James facing Granada

Real Madrid coach Zinedine Zidane won't rule out James Rodriguez playing against Granada on Monday night.

Ahead of the game, Zidane was asked if James, who has struggled for game time this campaign, would travel to Granada.

"You'll see later. I'm counting on everyone," he stated.

"It's his birthday so the first thing I'm going to do is congratulate him on that.

"He's part of the squad and I'm not going to disregard any player in my team.

"Everyone is important and everyone brings something to the team."
