He said: "I have not spoken with him, it is normal that a player wants to play the full 90 minutes.
“These are things that happen and that's it. He played well and I am pleased with that. I don't have anything against James, quite the opposite.
"It is true that he isn't on the pitch as much, but he is offensive and works hard."
