The Colombian striker endured a miserable season at Old Trafford as he struggled to replicate the form he had shown at Porto and Atletico Madrid which made him one of the best in the world.

After signing for the Red Devils on a season-long loan from AS Monaco on transfer deadline day in the summer of 2014, it soon became quite clear that the 29-year-old had not fully recovered from the knee injury that caused him to miss the World Cup.

His first goal didn’t arrive until the start of October and he would go on to find the net on just three more occasions in 26 league apperances causing United to not take up the opportunity to sign him on a permanent deal.

However, Falcao, who has been linked with a move to Chelsea in recent weeks [via SkySports] says he wasn’t a failure under Louis van Gaal and says he’s better than ever:

“People said I was not on the field and not scoring goals – Falcao was always there,” he said.

“Today Falcao is a more complete player. The speculation is not true. I am calm,” Falcao added.

The striker is currently away on international duty with Colombia and started their Copa America game against Venezuela on Sunday night.
