Delivering on the field for Bayern and in the field while playing Call of Duty on his PS4.

What does James Rodriguez do when he is chilling in the evening? Sharpening his senses while playing Call of Duty on his PS4 of course. All the while making sure his community is in the loop, with posts like this one on Instagram:

To make sure that he doesn’t miss out on any gaming time while away from home, he has had this little set-up put together. The console and TV are all strapped into a portable case—ready to go. Let’s hope that James will be equally ready to go for Bayern Munich’s next match after leaving the field before half time against Besiktas.

The next three games—Hertha, Freiburg and Hamburg—should be doable without him if worst comes to worst. But it’s pretty safe to say that James would probably rather be playing Bundesliga for real than on his PS4.
