Falcao feeling great and confident of finding goalscoring form

by Richard Laverty

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao is happy with his performance against Queens Park Rangers and relieved the side could return to winning ways after one win in five league games.

Falcao put in arguably his best performance in a red shirt and certainly didn’t disappoint his supporters. On another day, he would have silenced his critics with a perfect hat-trick.

The Colombian was denied twice by Robert Green; one a superb instinctive save before Steven Caulker got a vital touch on a James Wilson cross which denied the 29-year-old a tap in.

Falcao’s future is growing more uncertain by the day as his loan spell ticks down and reports now suggest United’s rivals are ready to swoop as Manchester City did with Carlos Tevez back in 2009.

But the Colombian is concentrating solely on his next game at the moment and was happy he played the full match at Loftus Road.

“It was 90 very important minutes for me. I need to play and I am very happy that I did. Obviously, I really hope to score soon, but the opportunities will come, I am sure of that.

“I am fine. I feel really good. I am playing without any sort of fitness problems.”

Falcao was dropped from the squad against Southampton but appeared to have moved on quickly from the disappointment when talking about his happiness at beating QPR.

“I am very happy with the win. It was a very difficult game but we managed the match well and got the three points.

“We were very close to scoring more and I could have had two goals. Sadly, the goalkeeper did very well and the other chances were not that clear.”

With Robin van Persie injured, Falcao will have the perfect opportunity to get among the goals against Cambridge United in the FA Cup on Friday night.
