“He is the one player in our squad who did not start a Premier League match. But, of course, he had that bad injury where he broke his leg and it breaks the normal way to play every match. In the past he had some problems also and it didn’t help him. That is not an excuse for why James did not start in the last two or three months when he started to come into conditions to come and work hard like the others.
“If I decide to start or put him into play, he will be involved at his best and he will be ready to help the team. It won’t be 90 minutes because, at the moment, he does not have 90 minutes in his legs.”
