Atletico Madrid attacker Radamel Falcao has voiced his admiration for Filippo Inzaghi, citing the former Italy international as a source of inspiration.
The 39-year-old ended his professional career this summer after an 11-year spell at AC Milan, and the Colombian has admitted that the ex-Juventus striker was an example to follow for him.
"Is it true that I asked Mario Yepes to ask Inzaghi to sign a Milan shirt for me? Absolutely," Falcao stated to Tuttosport.
"Inzaghi is a striker who I have always really admired because of his eye for goal. He has inspired me with his style of play."
Falcao has been linked with a move to a bigger club on more than one occasion in the past few months, but insists that he is not thinking about a transfer.
"The truth is that my wife and I are very happy with life in Madrid. I still have a four-year contract here. You can ask any questions regarding a transfer to the Atletico directors or to my agent."
The prolific hitman then went on to praise Barcelona star Lionel Messi and Real Madrid ace Cristiano Ronaldo.
"They are without a doubt the two best players in the world. They are great champions. Messi netted 50 goals in La Liga last term, while Ronaldo scored 46 goals. I only came third with 24 strikes."
Falcao has not wasted any time to impress in the opening stages of the 2012-13 campaign with hat-tricks against Athletic Bilbao and Chelsea.
