Radamel Falcao García Zárate
(most commonly known as Falcao)
Date and Place of Birth:
February 10, 1986 in Santa Marta, Columbia
At age 13, Falcao became the youngest footballer ever to play in the Colombian professional league.
British newspaper The Independent wrote about Falcao the following: His footballing change of style dovetailed neatly with his newly-discovered Christianity. The bad boy of his youth was transformed into a devoted Christian and that remains the cornerstone of his life today.
Today Falcao’s beliefs remain an essential part of his life. He has developed a habit whenever he scores a goal of lifting his shirt and revealing a T-shirt with the slogan: “Con Jesus nunca estara solo” (With Jesus you’ll never be alone).
Here’s what Falcao says about God and his faith: “I made the decision to follow Jesus Christ and to let Him guide my life, which is where things change. Because it wasn’t about me and my desires anymore, or what I wanted, but about what God’s plans and purposes were for me.
We are made up of spirit, and I believe that only God can satisfy the spiritual part. There’s the material world, but there’s also a spiritual aspect to life. We can have everything, but if we’re not satisfied spiritually, then it’s as if we had nothing, and we feel empty.
With Jesus, we can be assured that He will never leave us. That He will always be there, something which I have experienced in my own life, through His faithfulness, through His love, and through showing me that He had paid a price for our lives, which was that of His Son, Jesus.”
