Manchester United boss Louis van Gaal ‘impressed’ with Radamel Falcao

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal comments on the performances of striker Radamel Falcao.

Radamel Falcao may have yet to open his account for Manchester United, but manager Louis van Gaal is happy with him.

The Colombia international striker joined the Red Devils on a season-long loan deal from AS Monaco on transfer deadline day.

The 28-year-old has made two appearances in the Premier League so far this season and has given encouraging performances in both.

Falcao came off the bench against Queens Park Rangers at Old Trafford for his debut, and it ended in a 4-0 victory for the Red Devils.

Against Leicester City at the King Power Stadium last weekend, the former FC Porto star created a goal and was denied by the woodwork in the second half.

However, that game ended in disaster for United, as they conceded four goals in the space of just 21 minutes in the second half to lose 5-3.

Former Atletico Madrid striker Falcao is likely to be included in United’s starting line-up against West Ham United at Old Trafford on Saturday, and perhaps he will break his duck.
