Vindication for Man United’s forgotten man

Radamel Falcao’s goal against Leicester will go some way to answer the Columbian’s critics who’ve become increasingly vocal in recent weeks. Falcao’s strike put his side 2-0 up, after fellow striker Robin van Persie had put Man United into the lead via an assist from Daley Blind.

Radamel Falcao has made a slow impact at Manchester United this season, with many already writing off the Columbian’s move as a failure. After the striker was left out of United’s defeat to Southampton, many drew the conclusion that his time in Manchester was basically up.

However, such comments would appear a tad premature, as Falcao started and scored again today for Louis van Gaal’s side. £43.5m on a 28-year-old striker may still be a push, but if the Columbian can stay fit and gain some sort of momentum as the season closes, the argument around Falcao may start to take a very different tone indeed.
