Manchester United fans bid farewell to Radamel Falcao

by Richard Laverty

Radamel Falcao was given a start against Arsenal with Wayne Rooney out injured, and it appears the game was a farewell for the popular Colombian.

It was one of his better appearances in a red shirt. He was enterprising in his movement up front and there wasn’t a player on the pitch who worked harder than ‘El Tigre’.

Sadly, few chances came his way and it became painfully clear to the fans that have taken him to heart that he won’t be staying around when he was subbed for Robin van Persie.

Falcao looked disconsolate as he made his way off the pitch, waving to the crowd and it seems a lot of fans are still disappointed to see him go, despite his poor record.

Whilst at one point it seemed possible that Falcao could stay, and nothing has been confirmed, the striker didn’t look like someone who believes he has a long-term future at the club.

Whatever happens, most fans realise it was an exciting time to have a former world class striker around the club and that buzz lasted from September right through until May.
