In an interview with the club’s website, Valderrama praised James Rodriguez for his meteoric rise and was impressed by how quickly the midfielder adapted to Spanish football.

“We are at the Tourism Fair, representing Colombia and we wanted to come and see him, give him our support and tell him that Colombia is really behind him. We have to congratulate him for everything he is doing.

“He adapted quickly to the group and has done really well.
That puts him at ease so he can show all of his quality. He is young, he is learning and he arrived at a club where he can learn a lot more, in a great team, and at a great club. He has shown his quality. We belong to different generations. He was a child during my time and now he is our star and we will always follow him. We are shared idols, and we really hope that he can continue to grow and make our country happy.”

James was also full of praise for Valderrama, who was his boyhood idol and was proud to held in the same regard as the living legend.

“To meet somebody like him, who was an idol for me when I was a child, is really great and unique. I always admired him and will admire him all my life. It is a proud moment to be standing next to him. He admires me and I admire him. It is mutual admiration.”
