Former Real Madrid and Barcelona star Bernd Schuster is convinced Radamel Falcao stands alongside Cristiano Ronaldo and Lionel Messi.

Falcao has been in sensational form for Atletico Madrid this season.

"Right now the Colombian is like Messi and Cristiano. They're from another planet, but for Atleti, I see them only as an alternative to third place," said Schuster.
