Falcao on linking up with Juan Cuadrado and his reunion with Diego Costa


Chelsea striker Falcao says winger Juan Cuadrado will be a big asset for the club next season.

Cuadrado failed to justify his £23.3m price tag at Chelsea since joining from Fiorentina during the January transfer window.

But Falcao, who is also looking forward to play alongside Diego Costa, insists that his Colombia teammate still has a significant role to play for the Blues.

"In Colombia Chelsea has a lot of supporters and now with Juan Cuadrado and me, 45 million people watch each game, and not only in Colombia, in all of the continent Chelsea has fans," Falcao told Chelsea's official website.

"Juan [Cuadrado] is a happy person with very good qualities and skills and he only needs time to grow in this club and be important, like he was when playing in Italy.

"He is a fantastic player and everybody supports him because all the players and coaches know about his quality. He is so quick over a few metres and I think this season will be a good one for him.

"I talked with Juan before I came to Chelsea but I had decided I would like to join Chelsea some years ago.

"The media talked about me and Chelsea and it was not possible but this summer finally I come.

"He [Diego Costa] is crazy! And happy.

"I know him from Atletico and we enjoyed very good times. We shared very good moments and he is a great guy.

"Among funny moments there, I remember from the cold pool he sent the water over the players - every time!

"We are used to playing together, and the 2012/13 year was very good for Atletico when we scored a lot of goals. We are different kinds of strikers and we complement each other."
