Falcao revels in goalscoring run

Le Championnat

Monaco forward Radamel Falcao believes his best is still to come despite his fantastic start to the season.

The Colombia international netted his eighth and ninth goals of the new Ligue 1 season as Les Rouges et Blancs secured a 3-0 victory over Strasbourg on Saturday.

Falcao’s goalscoring exploits have come from just six Ligue 1 appearances, while he also netted for Colombia during their recent World Cup qualifier against Brazil.

Worryingly for the 31-year-old’s upcoming opponents, he believes he is capable of performing even better as the season develops.

“I feel good, better than last year, and as the months pass, I’ll feel even better,” Falcao said.

Despite his individual performances, Falcao insists his main priority remains winning trophies with Monaco, rather than receiving personal recognition.

“I don’t like comparisons very much, but the stats are there,” he added. “It’s important because I help the team and we keep on track for our objectives.”
