The ‘tiger’ Falcao returns with a roar of rescue for Rayo Vallecano

Colombian striker Radamel Falcowho hadn’t played for more than two months since February 26 due to a muscle injury in a calf, appeared again against the real society and in one minute he celebrated a goal worthy of a draw for his team and practically sealed the save.

Falcao had entered the last two calls against Espanyol and Barcelona, ​​but he didn’t play in either game. His return came against Real Sociedad and his return to the field could not have been better.

The last match day, against Real Sociedad, he jumped on the field in the 76th minute and a minute later he got a rebound from Alex Remiro after a shot from Allvaro Garcia who hit the post and only had to push on goal.

“I’m very happy for him because he came from a chain injury and it’s very good to come back with a goal. In the area he has that sense of smell, that sense of where the ball is going, and he’s shown it with the goal,” said his teammate Oscar Valentineafter the last game.

The goal was the culmination of a festive afternoon for Rayo and his fans, who, with the draw against Real Sociedad, virtually celebrated their steadfastness with four games to go with 41 points, ten more than Granada’s goal difference. benefit.

“We are not going to discover Falcao now. I am very happy for him because he came out of a series of injuries, because he was unable to help the team from the green. We already know that in the area he has felt that nose where the player is going ball. Today he showed it again,” said his coach, Andoni Iraola, when describing the Colombian.

Injuries have hampered Falcao’s performance this season as he has played 21 games, only eight as a starter, and scored six goals in 779 minutes of competition.

The good performance he has shown in the time he has played will see the club formalize his extension in the coming days, once some small margins that are still missing are completed, which will not be an obstacle to signing the extension of the contract due to the good aptitude of both parties.

The Colombian, despite his appearance as an international star, has adapted perfectly to the rayista locker room, to a club deeply rooted in the Vallecas neighborhood and to his modest goals of rescue, somewhat removed from the struggle for collective titles and personal recognition that allow large teams.

For the last four league games against Getafe, Villarreal, Mallorca and Levante Rayo aims to get as many points as possible and move up the rankings. For this, he has a luxury reinforcement for this final stretch, Radamel Falcao, who once again roared demonstrating the reason for his signing to the Vallecano team.
