James Rodriguez sparks fury by saying he 'doesn't even know' who Everton play next

EVERTON outcast James Rodriguez admitted he doesn't even know who the club play next as he awaits a transfer.

The 30-year-old's time at Goodison Park is all but over after reportedly being told he's not in manager Rafa Benitez's plans.

And the disillusioned Colombian star revealed he's not even sure of Everton's fixture list as he lines up a summer exit.

Rodriguez missed the opening day victory over Southampton due to Covid isolation and is ready to return this week.

But he made an alarming admission on his Twitch stream.

The 30-year-old said: "I will start training on Monday, I think.

"On the weekend I will not play, I don't even know who Everton is playing, can you please tell me?

"I think it is away because the past was here at home.

He later added: "Ah, against Leeds they play, away from home, against (Marcelo) Bielsa, a difficult game, let's see what happens, hopefully they win.

"I have faith that this season will be good for me, big things are coming for me.

"Between now and August 30, anything can happen, I don't know where I'll play, I'll be where things go well."

Speaking on Friday in his press conference, manager Benitez said: "Until August 31, he (James) is part of my plans."

Rodriguez admitted earlier this month that his transfer situation is 'complicated' and he needs to play at a place he feels 'wanted'.

He hit the ground running after signing for Everton from Real Madrid last year.

But he was plagued by injuries and played just five times after February – scoring only once.

And the Liverpool Echo reported that Spanish boss Benitez doesn't plan to use Rodriguez this season.

The report added that Rodriguez will be free to leave if the right offer comes in for him.
