Alex: Similarities between Falcao and Ibra
Paris Saint-Germain’s Brazilian defender Alex believes there are similarities between team-mate Zlatan Ibrahimovic and Monaco forward Radamel Falcao.
Both strikers netted as PS-G and Monaco played out a 1-1 draw on Sunday.
"I have never played against Falcao so far, but I obviously know him," Alex told reporters ahead of the clash.
"You can never relax against him, because he's always waiting for his moment. He reminds me of Ibrahimovic. He is one of the best and we will have to keep a close eye on him.
"He is a great player and a very dangerous striker. He is among the best in the world with his qualities. We have to be very careful against him and can't afford to allow him any space."
Alex joined PS-G last summer from Chelsea. The 31 year-old, who has been capped 17 times by Brazil, missed the clash with Monaco due to an injury.
