Atletico Madrid fan and AtleticoFans editor in chief Nick Poskitt has labelled Radamel Falcao as a ‘beast’ and has no doubt he will be a regular goal scorer for Manchester United once he is fully fit and a regular in the team.
Nick spoke exclusively to The Peoples Person this week about Diego Godin’s potential move to Old Trafford.
But Poskitt also had plenty to say about Falcao and was complimentary about the striker despite the fact he has managed just one goal in three months at Old Trafford.
The Colombian, nicknamed ‘El Tigre’, is already incredibly popular at Old Trafford and injuries have hampered him throughout the season but Poskitt says if United can get him on the pitch, he’ll be a success.
Speaking to The Peoples Person, Nick said: “Of all the striker’s we’ve had over the last decade – and this is a long list that includes Diego Forlan, Agüero, Torres, David Villa, Mandzukic – I rate Falcao the highest. The guy is just an absolute beast, and if Louis van Gaal can get him on the pitch, it’s only a matter of time before he starts banging them in.”

The striker missed over a month of action after picking up a calf injury and only returned to action last week against Hull City. Falcao was incredibly unlucky not to score, being denied only by a goal line clearance before making another cameo appearance against Stoke City four days later.
With all four of United’s strikers fit and ready to go, Falcao will have every chance of stamping his authority on a place in the team over the Christmas period.
