The message was displayed by the team moments before their 2-0 victory over bitter rivals Boca Juniors on Saturday.
The banner read ‘Strength, Falcao’. The Colombian made 90 appearances for River Plate between 2005 and 2009, scoring 34 goals.
He suffered the injury to his left knee during the French Cup clash between Monaco and Chasselay. Following surgery on Saturday, it is still not certain whether the 27 year-old will be fit to play a part in this year’s World Cup.
