“At Real Madrid, he wasn’t getting the game that time a player of his calibre deserves. You get the feeling that he is happy in Munich because it’s not easy when someone comes to a new country, culture, language and way of life.

“He is playing well, but he can play better. I have told him personally how I think he can improve.”

James has scored four goals and six assists this season, he is on the same goal with Thomas Mueller and an assist shy of the German international striker.

Up next for Bayern Munich is the DFB Cup against Paderborn on Tuesday and James is expected to be in the line-up.
