Simeone praises Falcao
Atletico Madrid coach Diego Simeone has hailed Radamel Falcao's latest performance against Chelsea as "indescribable".
The former Argentina player said he was speechless after watching Falcao dismantle the Blues with a stunning first-half hat-trick at the Stade Louis II in the European Super Cup.
Atletico Madrid ran out 4-1 winners over a lacklustre Chelsea, who never got out of the blocks.
Speaking after the match, Simeone said: "I am speechless. I really cannot describe it. What Radamel is doing is indescribable.
"He is a boy that, whenever you set the bar high, he sets it higher and rises to the occasion. He has dedication much higher than is normal. I have known him since he was young and he is always demanding. Pressure is the source of his strength."
Falcao, who has been linked with a move away from the Vicente Calderon, was overjoyed by his display.
"It exceeded my expectations and is more than I could dream," he said.
"I was dreaming of winning the Super Cup and dreaming of scoring goals but even then, it exceeded my expectations."
