Diego Costa: Why Falcao will be a very important signing for Chelsea


Chelsea striker Diego Costa believes Falcao will be a success at Stamford Bridge.

Manager Jose Mourinho opted to sign the Colombia international on loan despite a very difficult campaign at Manchester United last season.

But Costa has backed his new teammate to finally rediscover his best form at Stamford Bridge this season.

"Radamel Falcao is a very talented player who just needs a bit of affection," Costa is quoted as saying by Express Sport.

"I've spent a couple of seasons with him and I reckon things went fairly well. He did a lot for me and he's a great striker. He's a top bloke too.

"He is a really big-hearted guy and that's the most important thing.

"He is going to get everything he needs and I think he'll be fine; I suffered an injury similar to his in 2011 and now I'm fine.

"All he needs is the consistency of regular football and to feel loved - which I think he'll get from the manager - as well as his team-mates who will all be there for him.

"I think it's good for us that he didn't have the best of seasons as that's why he's now with us."
