Radamel Falcao: Says he is happy at Monaco

The Colombia international has not played since being substituted in Monaco's 1-0 win over Nantes last month, fuelling speculation that he is on his way out despite only signing in the summer.

The £50million man, who has four-and-a-half years left on his contract, has regularly been linked with a move to Chelsea, with Jose Mourinho believed to be an admirer of the striker.

Falcao, speaking to some of the club's fans at an event, made it clear he wants to stay.

He said: "I am very happy at Monaco and my wife is happy to live here.

"There is no problem with the coach, the doctors or the team.

"I just have a small problem with my thigh. I will play again soon when I feel better.

Falcao also had time to praise manager, Claudio Ranieri.

He said: "I don't feel at ease with the speculation. I first want to thank coach Claudio Ranieri for his patience.

"He let me take my time to come back, he doesn't put me under any pressure."

Ranieri suggested that his side could get by whilst their star player was out of contention at a recent press conference.

He said: "If Monaco was in 14th position without Falcao, it would be a problem. But we are in second position without Falcao, so it is good for us."

may well get slated by other United fans for this, but out of the three contenders, I'd far prefer Liverpool to win the title. Yes some elements of their fanbase can be a bit OTT, yes they're our biggest rivals and yes it will make our poor season feel even more like the end of an era (Fergie's gone, Liverpool are back on top). However I just have to applaud Brendan Rodgers and the way he's turned Liverpool around in just a couple of seasons. It...

ooray! We are all excited now, we beat a very mediocre team! With all due respect to WHU supporters, not winning that game shouldn't even be a consideration. This is the problem, there is no winning mentality at the Emirates - we're all congratulating ourselves beating a team that we have a winning record against.

s this meant to be an aspiration for United supporters? Moyes mediocrity strikes again. I see the Bayern boys don't want to sign for him, and his reputation amongst the senior European coaches make other key signings unlikely.
