A day after his move to AS Monaco had been made official, now former Atlético forward Radamel Falcao attended an event held at the Vicente Calderón on Saturday to bid Rojiblanco fans farewell.
“These two years have been the best of my career,” Falcao managed to say while trying to hold back tears.
“It has been an honour to defend this shirt.”
The 27-year-old then began to choke up, and members of Atleti’s press corps decided to cut the event short, as it looked as if Falcao would not be able to continue talking.
In his two campaigns in red and white, the lethal Colombian hitman scored 70 goals in 91 appearances (86 as a starter).
‘El Tigre’s’ impressive trophy haul included one Europa League title, one Super Cup and one Copa del Rey.
On behalf of the staff here at AtléticoFans, we’d like to wish our tiger good luck in his new venture, and we’d like to thank him for everything he offered our beloved club.
