After Radamel Falcao was badly injured in Cup game against Monts Or Azergue (3-0), Monaco plans could be thwarted. The Colombian striker could have ruptured cruciate ligament, which would translate to 6-8 months of absence, and “El Tigre” will even miss the World Cup in Brazil.
His team-mate Jeremy Toulalan confirmed after the match, two days ago, the concern of the Principality squad. “We lost Radamel. It is a blow for the team. I think it is a serious injury. Medical information is not reassuring,” said former player of Malaga.
Losing their star from attack could compel AS Monaco to reconsider their plans and to recall Lacina Traore who is now in England. Anzhi’s former player was loaned to Everton, where made medical visit and has already received a work permit for the UK.
This news comes at a delicate moment for the Stade Louis II team. Monaco is in second position in the Ligue 1 standings, 5 points behind leader PSG, and 5 points ahead of Lille. Ranieri’s team will play this weekend an important match against Marseille, at home, and a negative result would lessen the chances of the Principality group to the title.
