James Rodriguez has had a lot of talk about his future recently, with many linking him with a move to the Premier League. The Colombian midfielder may have added more fuel to the already roaring fire on Wednesday night when he appeared to call manager Zinedine Zidane a 'motherf****r'.
Zidane took a risk in fielding a Madrid side of fringe players against Leganes - with the spectre of a tough task against Bayern Munich on the horizon.
With key players such as Cristiano Ronaldo, Gareth Bale and Toni Kroos left out of the squad, Madrid ran out 4-2 winners thanks to a hat-trick from Alvaro Morata.
Despite getting on the score sheet himself as well as registering an assist, Rodriguez was substituted in the 72nd minute for Isco, and the South American took a strong disliking to his manager's decision.
According to Deportes Cuatro (via Marca), Rodriguez uttered the words motherf****r doesn't even play me the whole match" while he strops off the pitch, denying the handshakes of his teammates, as you can see in the video below.

The midfielder continues to lash out at the wall as he finds his seat on the bench.
Rodriguez has seemingly become more and more frustrated in the Spanish capital, and with a large number of teams vying for his signature, he could well be playing away from the Bernabeu next season.
