The familiar faces that James Rodríguez will find in the Qatar league | THE UNIVERSAL

In the next few hours, the signing of James Rodríguez by Al-Rayyan of Qatar could be announced. It will be a platform for the Colombian to have minutes again and regain the form to return to the Colombian National Team. (James Rodríguez would be close to Qatar football).

However, several sports analysts do not see with good eyes that the cucuteño leaves the Premier League, the highest level competition in the world, towards an uncompetitive league in which he would leave the elite.

But James’ present at Everton with Rafa Benítez on the bench is not encouraging at all, so there are few alternatives left to the former Real Madrid, Monaco and Porto to have continuity.

Although it is little known in Colombia and all of South America, the Qatar League is one of those that has recruited in recent years players who shone or stood out in European football, in the style of Chinese or American football.

This is in large part because that country is preparing to host the FIFA World Cup in 2022 and bringing in top players is a good way to promote the tournament.

Xavi Hernández is the most important signing in Qatar’s football in recent years.

Perhaps the best known signing was that of Xavi Hernández, the flagship player of the 2010 World Champion Spain and one of the leaders of the successful Barcelona in recent years. (The best memes of the announced transfer of James to Qatar football).

Today Xavi continues as coach of Al Sadd, a team with which he has won several titles and is projected as the next Barcelona coach.
