Radamel Falcao’s mother has come out to reveal that her son is currently unhappy with life at Manchester United, but will continue to fight for his place, Daily Mail reports.
The 29-year-old used to be one of the most lethal strikers in world football, but his loan move from Monaco has now turned into his worst nightmare.
Falcao has already featured in 25 matches under manager Louis van Gaal this season, finding the net only four times ever since his return from a serious knee injury.
His mother, Carmenza Zarate, admitted that the Colombia international has been having a very hard time in his last 16 months, from missing out on the World Cup to his form at Old Trafford.
“Not everything has been easy in Falcao’s life,” she said.
“He had some difficult moments in his career. They slowed his progress and prevented him from participating in important competitions like the World Cup, or have confined him to the bench, like in Manchester.
“I often remind him that after a test or a difficulty blessings arrive. We hope for bigger and better things. God hasn’t abandoned us and my son will become again what he has been, a goalscorer.”
He is now being linked with a return to his parent club, but a number of sides including Liverpool and Juventus are still keen on signing the player for a cut-price deal given his huge decline in form.
