Monaco chief blasts Man Utd, Chelsea: You failed Falcao

AS Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev says Manchester United and Chelsea failed Radamel Falcao.

Falcao scored just five goals in two years on loan but is now getting back to his best, claimed Vasilyev.

He told the Daily Mail: “Both clubs in England failed to relaunch him.

“I don't know whether Manchester United and Chelsea did not have the patience or the desire to do that but I am quite sure this year we will see Falcao at his previous best.

“He is the same Falcao as ever. We've seen that in pre-season.

“He scores goals, he's there and he is motivated, we are motivated and I think this will be his year.

“You have to be patient but the big clubs have other topics on their agenda.

“If you sign a player of this magnitude after a big injury it takes time and games to get him back into shape.

“This is what we will do and what Manchester United and Chelsea didn't do, failed to do or didn't want to do.

“We see all the qualities are there and it is a matter of time. Monaco will make every effort and you will see a very different Falcao this season to the one you saw in England."
