James Rodriguez has his heart set on winning more silverware with Bayern Munich after playing a starring role in the Bavarians’ 27th – and his own first – Bundesliga title triumph.
With Bayern still in contention for the UEFA Champions League and DFB Cup, Colombia stalwart James thinks Bayern’s work is still far from finished this season.
Watch: James plotting more titles
“I’m happy, it’s another title,” said the midfielder when bundesliga.com spoke to him at pitch-side following the latest win. “To be honest I’m very happy with this and I hope I can win more trophies. In the end this is what you’re working towards.”
James has been central to Bayern’s successful title defence. Sixth following the 26-year-old’s debut – a 2-0 loss to Hoffenheim on Matchday 3 – James has since chipped in with six goals and 10 assists.
Bayern CEO Karl-Heinz Rummenigge recently described him as a “very, very good transfer.” If James lifts yet more silverware he could render that the understatement of the year, if he hasn’t already done so.
