PUMA Profile – Falcão!

  • Written on:

Colombia and Atlético Madrid star striker Falcão has served every club throughout his career with distinction, as well as serving up trophies along the way! 

A quick scan of his rather impressive stats show that wherever the 25 year-old has pulled on a jersey, he has gone on to establish himself as chief goal-getter and record-breaker. The story of this remarkable player began in his formative years at River Plate where he got into the habit of writing himself into the record books thanks to his uncanny knack of scoring at any opportunity.

It was his fantastic form for River Plate over a four year period that persuaded perennial Portuguese title-chasers Porto to bring him over to Europe. Once again, Falcão maintained his knack of grabbing goals due to his pace, power and excellent finishing. It was, however, his record-breaking feats of last season which saw Falcão hit an astonishing 17 goals in Europe that have made him a household name.

In the summer it came as no surprise when Falcão signed for Atlético Madrid in you’ve guessed it... a record-smashing transfer fee, as the Spanish giants parted with the best part of €40 million for his services.

Will Falcão continue his record-breaking form score this season?
