Simeone praises ´ambitious´ Falcao

10 May 2012 15:22

Diego Simeone has voiced his admiration for Radamel Falcao after Atletico Madrid's 3-0 Europa League final victory over Athletic Bilbao.

The Colombia international netted twice to gift the Colchoneros a comfortable two-goal lead at half-time, and Simeone had nothing but praise for the prolific striker.

"Big players run a risk because they have experience but if they can't put their past wins to one side and get excited for a final, their experience counts for nothing," Simeone said after the match.

"Falcao is the best example. He forgot what he did last year and because of that he could live the moment he did on Wednesday.

"I've known Radamel since he was a boy. I had him at River (Plate in 2008), where we won a league together. I love him as a person and admire him. There's no ceiling to his ambition."

The 26-year-old was crowned Europa League top-scorer following his double in Bucharest.

Falcao has netted 12 times in 15 appearances in the competition.
