James Rodriguez returns to full training with Real Madrid

  /  autty

Zinedine Zidane worked with almost a full complement of first-team stars in Friday morning's training session, with James Rodriguez making his long-awaited return to full-contact work.

Eden Hazard has continued to train with the team all week without feeling any discomfort and is set to return against Celta Vigo.

James, although back in action at Valdebebas, is not expected to take part in Sunday's match, with the club still waiting for him to reach optimum fitness.

Mariano Diaz has had injury troubles of his own recently, but he too trained on the pitch at Valdebebas on Friday morning, accompanied by one of the team's fitness coaches.
