Colombian commits future to Ligue 1 newcomers.
New Monaco signing Radamel Falcao has insisted that he is ready to stay at Monaco for the long term but believes that success will not arrive in the principality overnight, Sky Sports reports.
The 27-year-old was high on the agenda of a number of top clubs across Europe earlier this summer but plumped for the newly promoted French side after they offered a more than lucrative contract.
However, despite many questioning his motives, he has stated that he is ready to accept the challenge of putting the 2004 Champions League finalists back on the map.
“Monaco have a long-term project, and the board want to take the club to a high level in European football,” Falcao told Futbolred.
“That won’t happen in one season, so I will remain a long time at the club, anything can happen after that.”
“Everyone likes to be valued, and to be in a place where they give importance to your work.
“Being a key part in this project enticed me.
“It will not be easy because Monaco are not one of the most important clubs in Europe. I want to take this challenge and work to reach the World Cup in the best way.”
