Radamel Falcao has talked about the former Manchester United players who he used to look up to when he was growing up, with Eric Cantona and Ruud van Nistelrooy the strikers he singles out for praise.

“I always admired Ruud van Nistelrooy in my position,” he said. “He was a star attraction for me. Ryan Giggs and Paul Scholes too, for their style of play. It is much admired by players from all over the world. David Beckham, of course. I couldn’t fail to mention him, as he has opened up the routes between continents as a footballer. They are legends who press all the right hero buttons. Eric Cantona as well – he was a very exciting and entertaining player to watch.”
