John Terry backs Manchester United flop to thrive at Chelsea this season

Chelsea captain John Terry has tipped ex-Manchester United loanee Radamel Falcao to prove his doubters wrong and help fire the Blues to glory this season.

The Colombian international will spend the entire 2015-16 campaign on loan with the reigning Barclays Premier League champions from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco, as Blues boss Jose Mourinho has decided to hand the 29-year-old another crack proving himself in the Barclays Premier League.

Falcao’s spell at Old Trafford last season was extremely disappointing as he scored just four goals in 26 league appearances and ultimately failed to convince manager Louis van Gaal to sign him on a permanent basis.

The former Atletico Madrid and Porto hitman came up against his new teammates for the Red Devils at Stamford Bridge back in April and his performance in that game has filled Terry with confidence that Falcao will be a star this season:

“His movement is unbelievable and literally two minutes into the game we played against Manchester United last season I turned to Gaz (Cahill) and said ‘we need to be on it today,” the Blues skipper told Sky Sports.

“Now I have seen him first hand in training on a daily basis and his finishing is unbelievable. I think if he gets a run in the side he can reproduce his form of the past.”

“He wants us to win things and if we are to win things he is going to have to score a lot of goals. We are hoping that it is a great combination and he does really well for us,” Terry added.

Falcao made his debut for the Blues as a second half substitute in the Community Shield showdown against Arsenal last weekend, but was unable to break his duck to prevent his new club from crashing to a 1-0 defeat.
