Falcao: Helped Porto to Europa League glory in Dublin on Wednesday
Porto's Europa League hero Falcao has played down reports suggesting he could leave the club.
The Colombian striker netted the only goal of the game on Wednesday as Porto saw off domestic rivals Braga to taste continental glory.
That performance, coupled with a phenomenal strike rate in Portuguese football, has fuelled speculation that he may soon be on the move.
Falcao has, however, moved quickly to dismiss the rumours, insisting he remains fully committed to the Porto cause.
"My future? I have two years left with Porto and I am happy at this club," said the 25-year-old, who moved to Estadio do Dragao from River Plate in 2009.

"My dream is now to play in the Champions League next season with Porto. That is the truth."
On his European exploits, he added: "I am very happy to have scored this goal and to have helped the club enjoy success.
"I could only have dreamt about this at the start of the season and I have enjoyed every minute."
Porto president Pinto da Costa has also sought to warn any potential suitors off a move for Falcao this summer by claiming that none of the club's top talents are for sale.
"We have no plans to enter into discussions for Falcao or any other players," he said.
"Letting players of that quality leave would damage the squad."
