John Terry reveals that back in April, when Radamel Falcao started with Manchester United at Stamford Bridge in a very important game for the league, he understood that the Colombian striker, now one of his team-mates, still was one of the most difficult players to mark on the pitch despite is unhappy spell at the Red Devils:
“I could tell pretty much straightaway how good he was and how difficult he was to mark.
“Literally after two minutes, he was backing in. He did the same to Gary Cahill.”
“We had a little tussle on the floor ten to 15 minutes later. He was up for it, was hungry and his movement and first touch were both excellent.
“You get that feeling as well. You can tell after a couple of minutes – it’s ‘I’ll give a bit and he’ll give a bit’.
“I just thought he was up for it that day and Gary felt the same.”
José Mourinho revealed also that he decided to sign Falcao just after speaking with his two defenders about this game against Manchester United.
