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 says he is determined to win silverware with Monaco and is relishing the chance of teaming 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, is preparing for Colombia's encounter with Argentina in a World Cup qualifier on Friday.

But looking ahead to next season, being successful is already the focus.

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 with a victory on Friday.

It is another Colombian star, Falcao, who has joined the newly-promoted Monaco outfit from Atletico Madrid, who Rodriguez is seemingly most looking forward to once again playing alongside.

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

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