former Everton and Real Madrid star James Rodriguez hopes Liverpool win the Champions League this season.

Liverpool meet the Spanish champions in Paris on May 28, who are chasing a historic quadruple after keeping their Premier League title hopes alive with a win over Aston Villa on Tuesday during Saturday’s FA Cup final against Chelsea pending.

Rodriguez twice won the Champions League with Real Madrid in his six years at the club before reuniting with his former Los Blancos boss Carlo Ancelotti at Everton.

Despite playing for Real and Liverpool’s Merseyside rivals, the playmaker is hoping Jurgen Klopp’s side will lift the famous trophy again this month for fellow Colombian Luis Diaz to enjoy.

“Liverpool are going through a very good moment right now and they have Luchito Diaz there,” James told Cadena SER. “I want Lucho to be champion.

“But Madrid are very tough in this kind of game. We saw that in the quarterfinals and semifinals.

“They have a lot of history and it’s going to be tough. I have former teammates at Real Madrid, I love the club very much.

“They have a long history in this type of game but Liverpool can produce a great performance.

“I want Lucho to be champion.”

Rodriguez left Everton after a stunning season last September to join Qatari club Al-Rayyan.

The 30-year-old has hinted he is keen to return to European football though.

“The transfer market will open soon, we’ll see,” he said. “Returning to elite football is a serious possibility. Let’s see who wants my left foot again.”
