Monaco coach Jardim admits Falcao very different to Man Utd, Chelsea days

AS Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim has hailed the form of Radamel Falcao this season.

A flop with Manchester United and Chelsea in consecutive seasons, Falcao has struck 18 goals in 24 games for ASM this term.

Jardim, after victory over Dijon, enthused: "Falcao has been effective in our attack.

"Falcao is a striker of high quality. After a month of stoppage, he played 90 minutes twice. It was a bit difficult. He had tried two free kicks this season, unsuccessfully. I put him on the bench to start (against Dijon), but we know his quality, we knew we would need him and his presence.

"He came back 30 minutes, scored a goal and could almost have scored in the second. He is a great striker."
