'Falcao needs to be at his best'

Atletico Madrid Coach Diego Simeone is expecting striker Radamel Falco to be at his best when they face Barcelona tomorrow.

The Colombian forward has been in exceptional form so far in the campaign scoring 16 goals in 15 League games.

And the 42-year-old tactician has admitted that they need him to be at his best if they are to win at Camp Nou.

“Against Barcelona we expect the best version of Falcao,” he told a Press conference. “But we have to help as a team.

“We need to assist, support and do our best for him.”

He also commented on the work done by Blaugrana boss Tito Vilanova.

“The work of Tito Vilanova at Barcelona has been very, very good,” he said. “But there has been very little talk of the Coach because of the players [at his disposal].

“And as a Coach myself, that's not good.”
