Radamel Falcao’s impressive preseason form hasn’t gone unnoticed

Radamel Falcao is slowly beginning to turn some heads again.

Once considered to be one of the greatest strikers on planet Earth, Falcao then became one of the most disappointing flops in Premier League history after having two unsuccessful loan spells at Manchester United and Chelsea.

You’d be forgiven for forgetting that the Colombian played 10 games for Chelsea last season, albeit nine of those appearances started from the substitutes bench. However, Falcao only managed to find the net once in those games, and as a result, he was shipped back to Monaco.

However, his second spell at the Ligue 1 club has started rather promisingly. Falcao has been quietly finding the net for fun during their preseason and although these matches don’t count, the general consensus from fans is that it’s great seeing the forward scoring goals again.

Check out Falcao’s latest goal, a well-timed header against Zenit St Petersburg at around the 0:25 mark in the video embedded below.
