PHOTO: Radamel Falcao popular among Manchester United fans

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao was caught on camera shaking hands with a fan before Monday’s Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion.

Radamel Falcao did not start Manchester United’s Premier League clash against West Bromwich Albion on Monday, but that did not affect his popularity among the fans.

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

One of the deadliest strikers in the world, prior to Monday’s game at The Hawthorns Falcao had scored just once in the Premier League. However, the 28-year-old is a very popular figure among the United supporters and the picture above shows that.

Prior to the contest at West Brom, Falcao shook hands with a zealous fan, who was probably delighted with the former Atletico Madrid and FC Porto star’s gesture.

Falcao has shown his class and has looked very productive so far for United, but there is still more to come from him.
