Radamel Falcao scored his first Manchester United goal today to give us all three points in a 2-1 win over Everton. He managed to put United ahead a little over five minutes after Everton drew level.

This was his first goal for the club after joining on loan on the final day of the transfer window and he has admitted he is relieved to get it out of the way.

“All strikers need goals, and for me there was a little bit of relief to score my first goal,” he told MUTV. “I hope to score many in the future. It was amazing that my first goal was at Old Trafford, I enjoyed it with all the fans and I want to say thank you to God, my team mates, all the staff and the coaches.”

United have the option to sign Falcao permanently at the end of this season which is a prospect the striker would clearly enjoy.

“Me and my family are happy here, and we would like to stay for many years at Manchester United.”
