Jose Mourinho is convinced that at Chelsea, Falcao will start to score goals again.
Jose Mourinho has revealed, that he was a bit scared when Manchester United have signed Radamel Falcao last year. The Special One was aware of Falcao’s impressive goalscoring record,during his stay at Atletico Madrid, and as he admitted, he was sure the same thing will happen in England. But the Colombian striker who joined the Red Devils on a season long loan from Monaco last year failed to impress Luis van Gaal.
Falcao has a problem with the return to form, after he suffered a serious knee injury before the World Cup in 2014. Even so, the Portuguese coach has decided to give him a chance in his team. El Tigre has recently joined Chelsea on loan. And the Special One is sure that at Chelsea, Falcao will start to score goals again.
Mourinho told ESPN:
“When he went to Manchester United I have to say I was a bit scared.”
“Because he’s a predator in the box and a guy who does score goals all the time. He did that in every club in every league, so I was convinced he was going to do that in our league, in England.”
“We had a very exhaustive analysis of his condition before we made a decision.
“Our doctor had real work to investigate all of that. He is not, for sure, a physical problem.”
“So if it’s not physical. We can make him score goals again.”
