Falcao withdrawl leaves Man United fans bemused

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United supporters were left confused, frustrated and annoyed when Radamel Falcao was hauled off for Ander Herrera during the side’s 1-1 draw with Stoke City.

Falcao had scored United’s equaliser and looked the liveliest player whilst team mates such as Robin van Persie, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata struggled.

Whilst it is partially understandable given Falcao has started three games in seven days after coming back from injury, he showed more energy and a will to run in behind than his striker partner.

And fans reacted poorly when the no.9 popped up on the board as Ander Herrera prepared to come on.

But one or two took a more reserved view given the amount of games Falcao has played in such a short space of time since returning from injury.

Due to injuries and a smaller squad than the club had when they went to MK Dons in August, Falcao may well be involved in some capacity once again against Yeovil Town on Sunday.
