Falcao has only scored four goals for United in all competitions so far this season, and was reduced to playing for the reserves earlier this month rather than taking part in the club’s FA Cup defeat to Arsenal – which saw him left among the substitutes.
Espindola, who was quoted by the Daily Mirror, said: “We talk a lot. I’m not going to say that he feels happy because he’s not. We’ve spoken many times and cried together.
“It’s not an easy situation because every player wants to play and every goal-scorer wants to score goals, that’s normal. But, at the moment, he isn’t scoring and that’s part of his football. He’s recovering his best form.
“When we spoke, I told him that this happens to every striker, that he’ll get over this poor run, and has happened to every great striker. When you don’t score, you’re going to begin to feel the pressure.”
Falcao played for the academy side against Tottenham less than 24 hours before he was due to face the Gunners. “When he was on his way to the ground to play this game with the reserves, he called me,” added a despairing Espindola.
“We spoke for 20 minutes until he reached the stadium and he told me ‘I’ve never been through something like this, I don’t know how to deal with this situation. It feels weird for me’.”
