It was not an easy 2020 for Falcao García. Despite his great start to the season, the Colombian has received criticism in Turkey for injuries and absences. Even media in that country point out that Galatasaray executives do not close the door to an exit from the forward. Also, in the last hours, they have chosen it as “the biggest disappointment of 2020”.
The Turkish daily Sporx carried out a series of surveys to choose the highlights of the year. One of them was the vote for the disappointed player of 2020. Falcao leads the election with 59% of the votes. As reported by the media, 6 out of 10 people have voted for the Colombian forward.
El Tigre was nominated alongside José Sosa, Adem Ljajic, Benik Afobe, Mauricio Lemos, Mert Hakan y Emre Akbaba. At the moment, Ljajic appears behind Falcao, with 17% of the votes.
The attacker missed 7 games, between the local championship and the Cup, due to the muscle injury he suffered in training on November 5. In addition, a suspension date was also absent. It has been 63 days since their last game, on October 24 against Erzurumspor, until he reappeared on the recent weekend against Trabzonspor.
What’s next for Falcao in Galatasaray
The continuity of the Colombian in the club is unknown. From Turkey they report that his departure is not ruled out, as Galatasaray would be thinking of reinforcing their offensive zone with a center forward.
“As a result of Falcao’s endless injury and Diagnost’s unstable performancee, Ogulcan Caglayan became a starter for Galatasaray, while the club thought of a transfer move that would excite their fans. HThat world star has appeared on the list: Diego Costa!“Sporx said.
This season, Falcao has scored 5 goals and has given 2 assists in 8 games played. Galatasaray’s next match will be on Saturday, January 2, against Antalyaspor, on the 15th date of the Turkish Super League.
