Whenever Radamel Falcao came to the touchline to warm up this afternoon, Old Trafford was united in singing his name. The amount of worship he gets is something unrivalled by any of the big signings in the past.
Ander Herrera, the man of the match in United’s 3-0 win over Hull, has sung the praises of the striker, and reflected on the moment that Falcao returned to training this week.
The fans love Falcao because he fights for every ball like it is the last ball of his life. That is one of his best characteristics. We are lucky that Falcao is here and I’m sure he’s going to be a very important player and I think the Manchester United fans know that. When a player gets injured it’s a bad moment for them. I know Falcao well. I knew him in Spain, he was fantastic. Atletico Madrid won the Spanish Cup against Real Madrid and he was the most valuable player in the final and we want to see Falcao as soon as possible on the pitch here. Anderson and me tried to make that moment happy for Falcao. We are like a family here – we all want to achieve the same objectives and everyone has to be involved.
