Unloved at Real Madrid, yet declared a "godsend" by Bayern Munich, James Rodriguez has rebooted his stuttering career in Bavaria and is set to shine again in the Champions League.It is a move that will actually cost Bayern only 13 million euros over two seasons, and one that is reaping rich rewards with Rodriguez the provider of six assists and four goals in 16 Bundesliga games.Rodriguez was instrumental when Bayern beat Paris Saint-Germain 3-1 in December to avenge the 3-0 away defeat which cost Ancelotti his job.Rodriguez is Heynckes' favorite midfielder, starting 12 of his 13 league games since October, and the 72-year-old – a Spanish speaker himself after managing Real Madrid – can also take some credit for helping Rodriguez get settled into his new surroundings.Heynckes has made it clear that he wants Rodriguez to roam the space behind Bayern's top scorer Robert Lewandowski, encouraged to shoot more and take risks.
