Robin van Persie has every confidence Radamel Falcao will come good very soon for his new club.
The Dutch striker has been in top form in recent weeks after turning his own fortunes around when his position seemed threatened by the return of Falcao but it appears the Dutchman turned that pressure into positive energy and since has four goals in four games.
The Colombian himself hasn’t started a match since he scored the winner against Everton in October after struggling with a calf injury but has made substitute appearances in the last four matches.
But despite just one goal so far for the star striker, Van Persie is sure Falcao’s top form is right around the corner.
“I think Wayne and me have been playing well over the last 2 and a half years,” Van Persie told Sky Sports this weekend before the Liverpool game.
“What I like about Falcao is the way he is committed to football and training. He gives it absolutely everything.
“Already he has shown some signs of how great he is. He had a bit of bad luck because he was on his way up. Actually for my first 2 goals he gave the assists, he’s a team player.
“In my opinion, I’ve been playing with a lot of strikers over the last 12/13 years, he is up there at the top and he will come good.”
With four games in little less than ten days over Christmas, Falcao can be sure to pick up plenty of minutes and hopefully a few goals in the near future.
