Bayern Munich coach Carlo Ancelotti was pleased with James Rodriguez’s display in his team’s 3-0 win at Schalke, but said the attacker was not yet at full fitness.
James, 26, marked his first Bundesliga start with a goal and an assist as Bayern moved top of the table.
“He did well, he had a good performance. He played with the team, for the team, together with the others, with a good combination,” Ancelotti said.
“I think he has to improve his physical condition because he is not 100 per cent, but what he did today was really good.”
Bayern are in action again on Friday when they host Wolfsburg.
