The Colombian striker’s problems since moving to the Barclays Premier League have been well documented in the media this season, scoring just four goals in 22 appearances, but the on-loan Monaco star wants the opportunity to prove his worth to the club:
“We have the last eight games, I will give my best to have the chance to play as many minutes as possible.” Falcao told Sport 360 (via The Guardian).
“I have said before I need to play. I need minutes and I am confident about me, about my fitness. I am confident.” he added.
Falcao has been back among the goals on international duty with Colombia in the last week, getting a brace in a 6-0 win over Bahrain then was successful from the spot against Kuwait on Monday night to equal the national team’s goal-scoring record and he wants to bring that form back to Old Trafford:
“I think when I score it’s always important and that gives me confidence. I said before I need minutes, I need to play games in a row and here in the national team I have had the opportunity. I gave my best and I scored and I now return to Manchester with more confidence.” he said.
With his loan spell set to end at the end of the season, the former Atletico Madrid and Porto man has two months to convince van Gaal to sign him to a permanent deal.
