Vilanova: Atleti more than Falcao

Barcelona boss Tito Vilanova has claimed that Atletico Madrid are more than Radamel Falcao as the two meet tomorrow at Camp Nou.

The Blaugrana host Diego Simeone's side on Sunday, and the 44-year-old tactician has admitted that the Rojiblancos have threats other than their Colombian goalscorer.

“You cannot always do everything as a player,” he told a Press conference. “Falcao is in great form, but they also have Diego Costa, Arda Turan and others.

“In any other League Atletico would be leaders. If we had not gotten so many points, they would safely be leaders.

“We know that tomorrow will be a tough match.”

He also commented on Simeone's remarks yesterday that the Catalan Coach is doing a brilliant job at Barca.

“I did not hear what he said, but thank you anyway. To do so well in the League and the Europa League, as they have done, is very difficult.”
