Radamel Falcao: Denies false reports that suggest he is 29

Radamel Falcao: Denies false reports that suggest he is 29

The Colombian joined Monaco earlier in the summer for £53million, with manager Claudio Ranieri recruiting a striker whose age was listed as 27.

However, reports in the South American media had suggested the former Atletico Madrid man was actually two years older, something which if true would have altered the landscape of his big-money move.

Falcao has expressed his surprise at the stories, though, writing on his Twitter page: "I have been surprised with stories in the media about my age. They are totally ridiculous.

"I want to deny this and end this issue once and for all."

arish is the man to blame for this shambles. Pulis must be chuckling into his left over turkey sandwich. I pray this doesn't mean the Neil Warnock media machine will kick in now and he'll be back on the telly box.

e almost found a new way to lose, just when I thought it was getting boring Giroud does that. Although Arsenal are deservedly called 'soft' the entire midfield is out injured. Still must admit MU are managing to win despite a similar raft of absentees. Think the Gunners have good players but poorly coached.
