James Rodriguez on the recovery of calf injury, likely to miss City and Burnley match

Everton playmaker, James Rodriguez, will be out of the field until April when he recovers from a calf injury.

While Abdoulaye Doucoure has been ruled out for up to ten weeks, Everton’s matches against Burnley and Manchester City will be missed.

In the Premier League, Everton hosts Burnley on Saturday, followed by a vital FA Cup quarter-final against City before the international break.

“There are a lot of rumors about James – he played well, really well, against Man United and against Liverpool but he was not 100 percent fit,” said manager Carlo Ancelotti according to the official website.

“We decided to give him a proper recovery and not let him play at 70 or 80 percent. We have taken this decision together. The player agrees.”

“No problem with the player. He wants to play, but he played against Liverpool and after 60 minutes I took him out.”

“It’s better for him to solve his problem and be ready for the end of the season. That can be, I think, after the international break, as it is not a big problem.”

“Doucoure had a small fracture on his foot. I don’t know how long, maybe eight weeks or 10 weeks. I hope he can recover before the end of the season.”

“We are not happy about this but we are not the only club that has to manage injuries. In this period there are a lot of injuries and we have to manage this.”
