Every major league in Europe has suspended football due to the Covid-19 pandemic except the Super Lig.
The Turkish Football Federation plan to go ahead with the weekend fixtures without fans to avoid large public gatherings.
Falcao started in the Istanbul derby against Besiktas on Sunday and is expected to feature again when the Lions take on Rizespor in Rize which is situated on the eastern Black Sea coast.
Trabzonspor midfielder John Obi Mikel also publically criticized the Turkish league not being suspended on Instagram.
He then terminated his contract through mutual consent forgoing future payments in the process.
