Monaco vice-president Vadim Vasilyev has claimed both Chelsea and Manchester United failed to ‘relaunch’ the Colombia international in the last seasons.

“Both clubs in England failed to relaunch him - Vasilyev said - 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 he 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”.

Falcao scored just one goal against Crystal Palace at Stamford Bridge during his spell at Chelsea.

“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.”

Swansea captain Jack Cork claimed Chelsea striker Diego Costa is a ‘world class player’ but he is also really ‘aggressive’, this is the reason why all the Premier League players should think twice before kicking the Spaniard during the game.

“Costa is showing he is a world class player, and if you tackle him or kick him you make him better - Cork told medias after the game - He seems to enjoy that because he is that type of aggressive player, which makes it tough because you have still got to challenge him and make your tackles”.

“He has got everything. He can hold it up, run with the ball, go in behind, or play clever little balls around you. If you get him in the mood he’s hard to deal with.”

Anyway, Diego Costa is actually the most suffered by any player in a Premier League match this season.
