"James isn't irresponsible," the Colombia legend told Blu Radio. "He trains every day just like everyone else.

"The coaches say that all players are the same to give motivation to substitutes, but they have three or four who always play. At Real Madrid, there are players who come from lower down and who come up.

"Don't tell me that the top scorer of a World Cup is below Mariano or whoever in the pecking order.

"There's a need for a little respect. James is patient, but I would tell Zidane to 'eat sh*t'."
