Bogota: Chelsea footballer Radamel Falcao's grandmother Dona Denis King Garcia has defended the striker after the former had another disastrous start to this year's English Premier League campaign.

The 29-year-old scored only four times last season for Manchester United and this year he has netted only once for the 'Blues'.
The Colombian forward was not even named on the bench for the 2-0 victory over Aston Villa on Saturday. However, his grandmother believes that Falcao has been given very little time out in the middle to have an impression on the game.
"At first he was used a lot. But after that he has been used very little; in those 10 or 15 minutes he's being given he can't do anything. And so it is very difficult for him. You have to give him more time to do what he does best," Dona was quoted as saying by the Metro.
