|Desc||The whole ‘Manchester United flop’ theme is starting to get old by this point, but don’t let Falcao’s ill-fated spell in the Premier League distract you from the fact that he is one of the most lethal strikers of the past decade. The Colombian was unstoppable for Porto and Atletico Madrid, but his career faltered somewhat after he ruptured his cruciate ligament in the buildup to the 2014 World Cup. He’s back on track with Monaco, but who knows what heights he could have hit if it weren’t for that injury|

[Radamel Falcao tells about his love of another sport] I love baseball. When I was little, in Venezuela, where I grew up, it was the sport I played, at a very good level.

Like Michael Jordan, even if he was a basketball player and did not get to play in the big leagues, at the highest level. I want to be the first to succeed!

[Among the clubs linked with the forward are Galatasaray and Valencia, and though Monaco have maintained that only an extraordinary offer would be good enough to sign him, Falcao says he believes the club understand his position on wanting to move on] I still have only one year of contract and it’s complicated for a player of my age.

[Hertha Berlin’s Dedryck Boyata and Marko Grujic also puckered up during their victory over Hoffenheim - and Colombia idol Falcao believes the criticism that has been faced by offending players is exaggerated] Watching the return of football I wonder, is there any technical reason to ban hugs after goals. We are in constant contact throughout the entire game. At a free-kick the defenders are all over you! In a wall they are all together
