Radamel Falcao’s leg injury causes concern for Man United fans

by Sam Peoples

Radamel Falcao took full part in training with Manchester United yesterday but did so with his leg bandaged up.

The Colombian striker was withdrawn against Leicester City after 70 minutes which has led to some questions about his fitness from fans.

However, it looks like Falcao has his leg bandaged to cover a surface injury he suffered in the Leicester match rather than any sort of muscular injury.

Given what happened to Falcao last year, any hint of an injury will be a worry for United fans but this surface injury shouldn’t be enough to stop him playing against West Ham later today.


Falcao came agonisingly close by hitting the crossbar against Leicester but is still yet to score his first goal in United colours, so will be hoping to do so against West Ham today.

If he is fit enough to start, Falcao will likely play up front alongside Robin van Persie with Wayne Rooney in the hole behind them once again.
