Malta Independent - - SPORT -

Monaco said that striker Radamel Fal­cao will not face Toulouse to­day de­spite hav­ing a “pos­i­tive” neu­ro­log­i­cal scan fol­low­ing his con­cus­sion last month. Coach Leonardo Jardim said on Wed­nes­day that Fal­cao would join the squad for the away match pro­vided he passed yes­ter­day’s scan. Although Monaco says the scan showed “pos­i­tive de­vel­op­ment,” the French club adds that he was left out as “a pre­cau­tion­ary mea­sure.” The 30-yearold Colom­bian striker has not played since sus­tain­ing a con­cus­sion against French league ri­val Nice on Sept. 21, but re­sumed light train­ing. Monaco says Fal­cao will be as­sessed again “in the next few days.” Fal­cao started the sea­son with three goals in six games.
