Denis Law backs Radamel Falcao to shine at Man Utd

by Sam Peoples

Denis Law has every confidence in Radamel Falcao coming good at Manchester United sooner rather than later.

Falcao has struggled with his fitness and form since arriving on a season long loan from AS Monaco in the summer but is now closing in on full fitness ahead of United’s very busy festive schedule.

The Colombian striker could join United in a permanent move this summer but that very much depends on his impact in the second half of this season and Law has every confidence he’ll deliver on that.

“Falcao looks well and is a very good player,” Law told

“There is no doubt about that and once he gets fully fit and feels right, he will come good. Good players will always play well, no matter which team they go to. It’s just a matter of slotting in.”

Law went on to discuss how he adapted when arriving at United back in 1962 having been bought from Italian side Torino: “I think it can be difficult for overseas players to adapt.

“Not as difficult probably as it was in our day because the world has shrunk. We had a telephone and that was basically it.

“Now with the communications we have today, you don’t feel so isolated from another country but it’s still not easy to settle into a new country with a different way of life, different food and of course, the language as well. But these guys are young and pick things up.”

Having made substitute appearances in two out of United’s last three games, Falcao is not far away from making his first start and United fans are excited to see if he can show the sort of goalscoring form which has earned him such a fearsome reputation.
