Falcao: Good news on injury

Falcao: Good news on injury

Falcao, Atletico's leading scorer with 18 league goals this season, pulled up holding his left hamstring while sprinting during the second half of Sunday's Primera Division match with Levante.

However, Atletico confirmed that scans have not shown any sign of a tear in the muscle, which will come as a relief to the high-flying Rojiblancos

Atletico have not yet said how long they expect the Colombia international to be out for, but will hope to have him available again as soon as possible as they chase silverware on three fronts this season.

heyremind me of Utd's treble winning side. Swashbuckling and risk prone. We ha Jaap Stam to paper over the cracks at the back though. Not sure they have their Jaap yet.

he solution is to not feel sorry for any of Jabba, Gold or Sullivan. They're all deeply unpleasant and all deserve each other. If only West Ham would sign Barton and Suarez then no one would ever need to despise any other club.
