Falcao: I'm not trying to compete with Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo

Atletico Madrid striker Radamel Falcao has stressed that he is completely focused on his own performances and is not looking to measure himself against Barcelona star Lionel Messi and Real Madrid attacker Cristiano Ronaldo.

The Colombia international revealed earlier this summer that he is ready to compete with the duo for the Pichichi trophy, but Falcao has made it clear that helping Atletico to success is his main priority.

“I did not say I wanted to compete with Cristiano Ronaldo and Messi,” Falcao was quoted as saying by AS.

“I simply want to score goals to help my team, nothing more. At the end we’ll see where I am.

“The most important thing is that the team fulfils their objectives. We are competing with 19 other teams, [sic] not only against Madrid and Barca.”

Falcao has netted seven goals in five La Liga appearances so far this term.
