Monaco manager Leonardo Jardim had his say on Radamel Falcao‘s decision to leave France as he joined Premier League two seasons ago.
“Falcao’s problem wasn’t only his knee injury but also that he left to go and play elsewhere for two seasons, in Manchester and then at Chelsea, – Jardim said – He tried to continue playing at a high level when normally when you have an injury like that, you stay at your club to try and get back quickly.”
Also the former Chelsea and Manchester United striker spoke after his side’s home 3-0 win to CSKA Moscow last night.
The Colombia international scored a brace and the Ligue 1 giants are now top of the group table.
“I had the opportunity to play in the Premier League, and I did it - he told journalists - I have kept the positive things of that experience as I developed as a player but also as a man.”
“Now I’m back at Monaco. I try to enjoy it as much as possible, to string games together to get back to my best,” he said. “I have always been able to overcome difficulties during my career. It’ll be the same now.”
