Foot­ball - Radamel Fal­cao close to Monaco re­turn fol­low­ing con­cus­sion

Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Monaco coach Leonardo Jardim says striker Radamel Fal­cao will be in the squad to face Toulouse on Fri­day if he passes a neu­ro­log­i­cal scan. Fal­cao has not played since sus­tain­ing a con­cus­sion against French league ri­val Nice on Sept. 21, but re­sumed light train­ing. Jardim says Fal­cao will have the scan on Thurs­day and “if he gets the green light, he'll be in the squad.” The 30-year-old Colom­bia striker made a de­cent start to the sea­son — with three goals in six games — and Jardim says “Fal­cao re­mains my No. 1 choice.” Fal­cao joined Monaco in May 2013 from Atletico Madrid in a deal worth 60 mil­lion eu­ros. A se­ri­ous knee in­jury at the start of 2014 cost him a place at the World Cup that year.
