Manchester United Boss Louis Van Gaal Confused By Coach Of The Year Award
Radamel Falcao insists he wants to stay at Manchester United permanently despite his trouble settling in at Old Trafford.
The centre forward has only started three Premier League games for United since his summer, deadline day loan move from Monaco and none for two months after a number of injuries have kept him on the sidelines.
Falcao returned to first team action in the Red Devils recent 3-0 win over Liverpool but only came on as a substitute after 78 minutes.
Despite now being fit, the Colombian has been shunted down the United striker pecking order with boss Louis van Gaal insisting he will not pick the former Atletico Madrid man on reputation alone.
However, despite his difficult start to life in the Barclays Premier League, Falcao has insisted he wants to remain in Manchester.
“I have had an injury, and I have had to wait for the opportunity to play. From my point of view, yes I want to stay,” Falcao said reports the Daily Mail.
“Obviously I have to analyse the situation, see if I play more and see what decision the board takes. But from my point of view, I really want to stay.”
The £250,000-a-week man has only scored one goal for United and has had a stop-start beginning to his Old Trafford career after a series of thigh injuries have kept him out, but he now believes he’s fully fit.
“I am very happy because of the run that we are on. I am not playing many minutes but I am sure that there will more opportunities to play
“I feel ready for the moment that the team needs me. Whenever I have the opportunity to come on I try to do my best for the coach and I try to help the team,” he said.
“I’m almost at 100 per cent now so let’s wait and see what the decision of the coach is, when he wants to use me more.”
