Everton new player James Rodriguez believes the Premier League club are ready to end their 25-year trophy drought.
James joined the club from Real Madrid on Monday, as the Colombia midfielder reunited with Toffees manager Carlo Ancelotti.
Having won La Liga and Champions League titles with Real and also emerging successful in Bayern Munich, the 29-year-old believes Everton can lift major silverware for the first time since the 1995 FA Cup.
James who’s positive about Everton’s success, says the club means business and that with its players, they will win a good number of trophies.
“There are a lot of serious-minded people at the club at all levels who mean to achieve and that means winning trophies,” he said. “That won’t happen overnight but I have seen real positive signs we can make progress. I think trophies are more than a possibility. I am the sort of person that always wants to achieve more and more in my career and my life.”
Everton boss Ancelotti is confident James, can bring the best out of the 2014 World Cup Golden Boot winner who fell out of favour at Real.
“We can expect him to show his quality. He has a lot of quality and I am sure he is going to show it in the Premier League,” said Ancelotti.
