It's not goodbye but see you soon, Falcao!

Radamel Falcao is officially an Atlético Madrid player

I'm so sorry that this is late, it took me some days to recover that he's gone. Anyway, this is the transcript of the interview from the club's website:

Arrival in Madrid
"The joy and signs of affection I received gave me peace of mind and gives me the illusion of wanting to work hard to give happiness to all the fans of Atlético. When the agreement was finalised between the clubs there was a media explosion that made me happy.”

"To give one hundred percent. Every game I will play with heart. I've always played the game that way. I think that putting together a team of interesting players is important and I will contribute the maximum to help the group achieve the objectives. I am one who comes to bring the best of my potential. I hope to do so, and with the help of the entire team, we will continue to form a strong group. We can achieve great things."

Total Defense
"Not only goals but I can offer a lot in the buildup. I try to get involved, create situations of play for the team and join in the attacking play. Above all I have mobility to move around the front of the attack. I'm not a typical player who waits in the area. I try to enter the line of play for 90 minutes."
