James Rodriguez targets titles with Monaco

The newly-signed Colombian has revealed his desire to win trophies at Stade Louis II and is delighted to be playing alongside former Porto team-mate Radamel Falcao
James Rodriguez is determined to win silverware with Monaco and is relishing the chance to team up with Radamel Falcao again.

Rodriguez, 21, who recently moved to the Principality along with Porto team-mate Joao Moutinho for a fee believed to be in the region of €60 million (£51m), is preparing for Colombia's encounter with Argentina in a World Cup qualifier on Friday.

But looking ahead to next season, he is already focused on being successful.

He told reporters: "When you arrive at a new club, the goal is to win titles. I hope we will win titles."

Colombia are third in qualifying for Brazil 2014 and can close the gap on leaders Argentina to two points with a victory on Friday.

And Rodriguez is most looking forward to playing alongside international team-mate Falcao at the Stade Louis II, while the two also played together at Porto for two years before the striker moved to Atletico Madrid last summer.

"Playing with a friend is always good. I hope we will achieve great things with Monaco," Rodriguez added.

Falcao completed his €60m (£51m) move to Claudio Ranieri's side last Friday.
