James Rodriguez will add a great deal of dimension as far as the attacking options are concerned. His positional acumen, dribbling and his sheer ability to score stunners or volleys, makes him one of the top-class players in the current era. For sure, the Greek Super League giants will largely benefit from the midfielder’s services.
Can see him flopping tbh, poor business from olympiakosAdvertisement
