Ranieri hails Falcao’s signing

Radamel Falcao
AS Monaco coach, Claudio Ranieri has labelled multi-million Euros signing Radamel Falcao a “truly great player” and revealed he plans to build the principality side around the Colombian goal machine.
Monaco officially announced the signature on Friday and if rumours placing the transfer fee from Atletico Madrid at €60m are true, Falcao will set a new transfer record for a Ligue 1 club.
After Monaco’s Russian billionaire owner, Dimitri Rybolovlev, described Falcao as one of the “best players in the world” Ranieri spoke of his admiration for his new star: “I am delighted that he has decided to join us,” said the Italian coach who joined the club himself at the start of last season. “We want to build a very good team around him.
“He is a truly great player, he works very hard for the team, but is also a constant threat in front of goal. He really is very impressive.”
Ranieri then added: “When I joined this club, I knew what the sporting project entailed. Now everyone understands why I made my decision.”
Falcao becomes the principality club’s fourth signing after Porto pair James Rodriguez and Joao Moutinho and Real Madrid defender Ricardo Carvalho.
