Falcao Says His Future Is Out Of His Hands

Sought-after striker Radamel Falcao says he has not thought about leaving Atletico Madrid, but admits his future is out of his control.

The 26-year-old has been heavily linked with both Real Madrid and Chelsea after scoring 13 goals in nine appearances to help propel his side to second in the Primera Division table, behind Barcelona on goal difference.

“I am calm. I don’t even know what I’m doing tomorrow,” Falcao said when asked by Ball Point about being linked with Real Madrid and his plans for next season.

“I am happy here and enjoying things at present. I am not thinking about leaving, only in playing this season, and I hope everything goes well.

“The club has needs and it depends on certain results. There are many factors. The economy of the club, entering the Champions League.

“Later, Atletico and the responsible people will decide what to do with my future. Many times the players are the last to know.”

Falcao is one of 23 names shortlisted for the Ballon D’Or but, although delighted to be nominated, he was disappointed his boss Diego Simone did not make the list for the coaches award.

“He made many merits to be (on the list),” Falcao said. “He had no time to prepare last year and immediately put a run together. Thanks to him we were about to enter Champions League. It is a shame they do not recognise this.

“I am very grateful to be on the list.”
