Former Colombia star Faustino Asprilla believes that Radamel Falcao will have to leave Atletico Madrid to further his career.

Asprilla said Falcao would need to move to a bigger club if he wants to win the FIFA Ballon d’Or at some point in his career.

Asprilla believes that only players from ‘big clubs’ have a chance to win the prestigious individual award, and feels Atletico could face a tough task to hold on to Falcao.

“Winning the Ballon d’Or with Atletico Madrid is impossible. Only players from big clubs like Real Madrid, Barcelona, AC Milan and Juventus win,” Asprilla told Cadena SER.

“Falcao was born to score; he’s a great finisher, the best around at the moment, like Alan Shearer used to be in my days.

“Radamel is a player that should be playing in the Champions League so Atletico Madrid are going to have big problems hanging on to him. He’ll have to go to another club to break records.”

Falcao has so far netted nine goals in seven La Liga appearances this term.
