Ander Herrera has been talking about a fellow summer arrival at Manchester United.

Manchester United midfielder Ander Herrera has been speaking about the club’s loan signing Radamel Falcao.

In an interview with MUTV, the Spanish midfielder spoke about the Colombian’s recent injuries and revealed what he felt the striker’s most impressive traits are.

“The fans love Falcao because he fights for every ball like it is the last ball of his life,” Herrera said.

“That is one of his best characteristics. We are lucky that Falcao is here and I’m sure he’s going to be a very important player and I think the Manchester United fans know that.”

Falcao has only made six appearances since he arrived at Old Trafford from AS Monaco but his teammate knows it is only a matter of time before his injury woes are behind him.

“When a player gets injured it’s a bad moment for them,” the midfielder said. “I know Falcao well. I knew him in Spain; he was fantastic.”

And he could well be again once he gets back to full fitness and in front of some impressive creative talent in the form of Herrera, Angel Di Maria and Wayne Rooney among others.

Herrera himself has to get back to his best after finally making an appearance for the senior team following a spell out of the side; but fans will be all too aware that a side containing both him and Falcao would be one to get very excited about.
