Falcao complains over image misuse

Jose Mourinho has reportedly admitted being interested in signing Radamel Falcao, after conceding Chelsea are 'missing a striker'.

Monaco forward Radamel Falcao has complained over the use of his image in the ongoing electoral campaign in his native Colombia.

 Falcao has 55% World Cup chance

​Falcao, 28, is a huge star in his South American homeland, and his endorsement of a candidate would be a significant boost in attempts to win the popular vote. However, the former Porto and Atletico Madrid striker took exception to his image being used by Jorge Franco Pineda of the Opcion Ciudadana party ahead of polling on March 9.

"I don't support any political party, nor any Congressional candidate," the player wrote on his Facebook page. "Those who have used my image did so without my consent."

Falcao added his name was a registered trademark and threatened to take legal action unless "immediate rectifications" were made.

Pineda has since apologised via his own Facebook page and stated the collection of photos, which included Falcao and a number of other high-profile Colombian sports figures, has since been removed from the social networks on which it had appeared.
