Attacking midfielder James Rodriguez was delighted to help Real Madrid secure their spot in the Champions League quarter-finals, despite being booed by the home crowd.
James’ recent performances have drawn the ire of the Santiago Bernabeu faithful and he was on the wrong end of their scorn early on during Madrid’s 2-0 second-leg win over Roma on Tuesday.
But those boos turned to cheers when James scored the second goal, which saw the Spanish giants progress with a 4-0 aggregate win.
James said the fans were within their rights to voice their opinion.
“The fans want a nice game and when not everything goes so well, they have every right to boo,” he said.
“I just try to play well, and they know when it is right and when it is wrong.
