Atletico Madrid president Enrique Cerezo believes that Radamel Falcao is currently the best striker in the world.

The 26-year-old striker scored five of his side’s goals in Sunday’s 6-0 La Liga win over Deportivo La Coruna, and the club supremo is delighted with his star striker’s recent form.

“(Falcao) is best striker in the world,” the 64-year-old said at a presentation at the Vicente Calderon.

“It is the first time I have seen a player get five goals here. I have seen others like Christian Vieri or Milinko Pantic do four, but neither of them did five.”

Falcao’s sensational form has reportedly ignited the interest of major European clubs.

Cerezo has stated that Atletico have not received official enquiries for Falcao, but also admitted the club might not be able to hold on to him beyond the January transfer window.
