Before a light training session in the Welsh capital, Carlo Ancelotti confirmed that both Toni Kroos and James Rodriguez will make their debuts on Tuesday in Cardiff in the UEFA Super Cup.
Rodríguez "can play in a number of forward positions. On the wing where he is used to playing, behind a forward as he has done for Colombia and even a little bit further back as an attacking midfielder. I will try him in that position from time to time", Ancelotti said.
He added that Rodriguez is a player with an "amazing quality, who is physically very well prepared".
