Falcao thinking only of Atletico

SoccerNews in La Liga 6 Feb 2013


Radamel Falcao has reiterated his commitment to Atletico Madrid and believes he can win more trophies with the Spanish side.

The Colombian striker, who lifted the Europa League with Atletico last season, has had his future subjected to fierce speculation over the past six months with moves to clubs such as Real Madrid, Manchester City and Chelsea all being reported.

However, the former Porto forward said his thoughts are only with his current side as they launch a sustained push for La Liga.

“I have three years left on my contract at my club and I am happy and satisfied,” Falcao told reporters.

“It is clear to us what we want, which is to qualify for the Champions League, but if we can fight for the title, then we will.

“We will continue fighting for the league while it remains a mathematical possibility. We know it is hard because Barcelona are having a faultless season.

“Obviously in sporting terms I have the ambition to continue to progress and do better than this season, to keep fighting at the top of the Spanish League, the Europa League and in the semi-finals of a tournament like the Copa del Rey. I just think of Atletico.”

The 26-year-old reflected on the seven-point lead his side have over fierce local rivals Real Madrid, saying that while it is a good feeling to be above their illustrious neighbours, it is not Jose Mourinho’s side who dominate their thinking.

“We have a very good seven-point lead over our rivals, who in many years have been superior to us in terms of results,” he said.

“We wish to continue to maintain the distance, but it does not concern us if we are in front or behind.”
