Falcao looking forward to ‘great final’

Radamel Falcao hopes that Atletico Madrid win the Champions League, and has admitted he’ll be cheering on his former teammates.

The Colombia international left the Rojiblancos last summer to sign for Monaco, but that doesn’t mean he won’t be supporting his former team next Saturday in the Champions League final against Real Madrid.

“The two teams are even and have the same chances of winning the final,” he is reported as saying by goal.com at a Puma event on Thursday.

“It will be a great game. There was already a derby last year in the Copa del Rey final and Atletico won. 

“That shows that finals are different. I would like Atletico to win, of course. I have a great fondness for the club, for everything I experienced there, for my team-mates – and I will be supporting them.

“Cristiano [Ronaldo] knows what Atletico means to me. But I haven’t spoken about the final with him.”
