Radamel Falcao has admitted that Chelsea’s poor form has hindered his attempts to settle in to life at Stamford Bridge.
The Colombian signed for Chelsea this summer after Louis van Gaal and Manchester United decided they did not want purchase the forward after he spent last season on loan at Old Trafford.
Falcao’s time in Manchester was dismal as he scored just four times in 26 appearances and never seemed to find his feet.
Things haven’t gone much better for the 29-year-old in West London, scoring just one goal since joining Chelsea. The team as a whole have struggled during the early parts of the season and currently lie in 16th place in the Premier League. Falcao feels that the team’s displays haven’t helped him.
“I’m fine, I am evolving, increasingly I feel better,” Falcao said.
“The team’s results haven’t helped, the collective performance has not been as expected, but we have the ability to reverse the situation.”
Chelsea’s start to the season has been dreadful and the Blues know they need to turn things around quickly.
With Diego Costa suspended for improper conduct, the onus might be on Falcao to provide the goals the side desperately need.
The striker has not found life easy in England since his move to United. He had a proven goalscoring record before making the transition to the Premier League, having scored buckets of goals in Portugal, Spain and France. However, it seems as though his cruciate ligament injury which kept him out of the World Cup has had a huge impact on him as a player and it is unlikely that we will see the Falcao of old ever again.
