"Falcao is the absolute idol of recent years, not just because he's the leading goalscorer in Columbia's history, but also because of what he represents for our 2014 World Cup, even if he didn't take part it was he who got us there (scoring a late equaliser to make it 3-3 against Chile). Off the pitch, for everything he represents, he's vitally important."
"We have great players. David Ospina, James Rodriguez or Falcaocan be named captain without a problem, they are good leaders, important people in the dressing room who help a lot, talk, give advice."
"We know that in the box Falcao is incredible, excellent. When he's playing, we'll try more crosses. Yes, I remember the 3-3 in Baranquilla, I was there. We were really nervous. It was a great moment."
"I'm really pleased that Falcao's back, for everything he represents for the squad it's important he's here. We know how important he is and I hope he'll be staying here for many years. He's a friend. We've built up a relationship over several years, we keep in touch. His return is positive for us."
"I felt a lot of very intense emotions on this return to the international squad in Barranquilla, a place that's always been very special for me. Feeling the affection of a whole people brought out a whole lot of feelings in me. I've tried to make the most of it, to help the team. I felt very emotional, as if it were my first match with the team. I'm very happy to be back with my friends, and the staff."
"Football travels across borders and is a big influence on society in my country. I have had the opportunity as a footballer to pass on certain values that can serve young people and future generations. Football lets you be more than just a footballer."
"I feel very good at Monaco, well thought of by the club and the city. AS Monaco's project to keep progressing and growing is ambitious. We have very good players who are going to be very important in the years ahead. We are pleased with our start to the season. Hopefully we'll finish it well and the next one will be as good or even better."
