Monaco coach Jardim warns Spurs: Falcao returning to his best

AS Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim has warned Champions League opponents Tottenham of a revitalised Radamel Falcao.

Former Manchester United and Chelsea striker Falcao was in prolific form in pre-season before a slight thigh injury forced him to miss the opening games of the French league season.

"I am convinced Falcao will get back to the level we saw him playing at Porto and Atletico Madrid," said Jardim.

"Certainly the work he is putting in to achieve this bodes well for the future and he is certainly striving hard to get back to how he was playing."

He returned as a substitute during a 4-1 win at Lille on Saturday and is available to face Spurs.

Jardim said: 'If he played a full 90 minutes in the last game, he would have definitely been struggling to play two games in four days.

'The fact he only played 25 minutes means he could feature and, if he does, we'll see how he evolves during the game."
