“In 1991 I was training the Brazilian national team but Viola called me. I was ready to go to Cortina D’Ampezzo (an Italian town) to sign a two-year contract.

However, in that period he got sick and shortly after he passed away.”

Falcao also highlighted his great friendship with the current Roma managers.

“Roma managers have a great respect for me. Definitely more than those of International Porto Alegre.”
