Radamel Falcao receives praises from Monaco coach Thierry Henry, who referred to him as his team’s “charismatic leader”.

The Colombia international has netted four Ligue 1 goals this season and has scored 54 goals for Monaco across the past two campaigns.

“[Falcao] is our goalscorer, our charismatic leader. Everyone knows what he represents for this team,” he said via FourFourTwo.

“I am happy that he is back, not only him but all the players, as we try to get a good result at Strasbourg.

With Monaco struggling in 18th place in the table, Henry admonishes the team to work hard for better results in the upcoming game.

“We know it won’t be easy. Last game we know that they couldn’t hold on for victory. Maybe a good game to watch, but let’s work and see what we can do there.

“It was short, [Friday] is already one day before the game. So we need to work and video is our best friend these days.”

The team have just one win in nine league games this season.
