Everton coach Carlo Ancelotti assured after beating Tottenham Hotspur that if James Rodríguez was concerned about his speed, "he would have signed Usain Bolt" and not the Colombian. The Italian coach lined up James in his Premier League debut and the Colombian was one of the best in the 1-0 win over Tottenham.

"Players who know how to play don't need a lot of time to adjust. James knows what to do, as do Allan and Doucouré. I just told him to bring out his quality and he did. We have a good mix of players in between." explained Ancelotti on the British channel BBC.

"James is not the fastest player in the world, but he has a lot of quality. We have to use him to show his quality. He is not a winger, but he can come to the middle and receive the ball, he is very dangerous. I am not worried about his rhythm and his speed. If I was worried about that I would have signed Usain Bolt, not James, "added the Italian coach.
