Liverpool legend: Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao could be an absolute star


Former Liverpool player and manager Graeme Souness says Chelsea striker Radamel Falcao could be an "absolute star" this season.

The Colombia international moved to Stamford Bridge after a below-par campaign at Old Trafford last season.

But Souness believes the 29-year-old will not be under the same pressure to perform as he was last season and could be a valuable asset in the Chelsea line-up.

"I think Falcao could be an absolute star," Souness told Sky Sports.

"He goes to Manchester United and was finding his feet after an ACL injury. That's the injury players don't want because there's no guarantee you'll come back the same player.

"No matter how good Falcao was before that injury, that would have been in his head.

"He went to Man United, who were chopping and changing their team at the start of last season, looking for a formula. He was in and out of the team and never really got a run of games and I just think he's [now] gone to a team that's settled.

"The system is settled and players are playing with confidence. They're the current champions.

"If you go back three years and asked 10 serious football people if they would want to take Diego Costa or Falcao, to a man they would have taken Falcao.

"He was up there with the very, very best three years ago. The same pressure won't be applied on him this time. He'll be allowed to find his feet."
