Herrera: Falcao best in the world

Celta Vigo boss Paco Herrera has admitted that his team will be hard pushed to stop Radamel Falcao on Friday.

The Celestes face Atletico Madrid tomorrow, and the 59-year-old Coach has called the Colombian 'the best pure nine in the world'.

“Falcao is now the world's best pure No. 9,” he told a Press conference. “Another striker who I also love is Karim Benzema, although he's perhaps not an 'old-fashioned' striker.

“But he does not have a finishers' brain like Falcao does.

“We'll have to do very well to defend against him because in the area he is a phenomenon.

“He is obviously a very special player, but we will also have to pay close attention to the likes of Diego Costa and Adrian, if he plays.”
