Jesé Rodríguez acknowledges that, even though he's already recovered from the ACL injury that kept him out for 8 months, he still needs to get in his best shape on make an impact for Real Madrid during this tough January stretch. That's why he will work with a Real Madrid physiotherapist in his home town Las Palmas.

Real's winger expected to play a bigger role in this past FIFA Club World Cup, but Carlo Ancelotti only gave him minutes in the Semifinal against Cruz Azul. Jesé could be a crucial player for the Italian coach, who will be forced to make some rotations this next month if Real Madrid want to compete against Atlético in the Copa del Rey too. Precisely, January 2014 was Jesé's breakout month.

Something similar could happen if his work during Christmas pays off.
