Chelsea target Falcao hits five in La Liga game – Plus highlights

Long-time Chelsea target Radamel Falcao scored five goals in Athletico Madrid’s 6-0 win over Deportivo on Saturday night.

This is the first time a player has scored five La Liga goals in 10 years, when Fernando Morientes scored 5 in Real Madrid’s 7-0 win over Las Palmas.

Falcao was rampant, scoring four goals with his deadly right foot, and one with his head. Watch for yourself…

“I scored five in a game when I was little in Bogota,” Radamel Falcao told Atletico Madrid’s official website. “And I got four playing for Porto against Villarreal but never five as a professional.”

“I was very excited when I came to Atletico Madrid. It was a personal challenge to play in this great league with such a lot of good players.

“I am enjoying it. I have a great squad around me who are supporting me and helping me a great deal to develop as a professional.”

Falcao has now scored 16 goals in 15 appearances in La Liga this season, 3 more than Cristiano Ronaldo and 7 less than the amazing Lionel Messi, helping Athletico to second in the table.

Luis Suarez is a menace to defences, Van Persie is deadly accurate and Aguero always seems to be in the right position. Falcao is all of these things.

The Colombian has a £48Million buy-out clause in his contract, which I would say is cheap, for one of the best players in the world.

I believe he could work well with Fernando Torres, who has struggled for form this season. We cannot afford to put all our faith in the inconsistent Torres, and can’t risk losing out on Falcao to one of our rivals. I’m hoping Roman Abramovich is on the same wave-length…
