Colombia coach Jose Pekerman is convinced that Radamel Falcao will shine at Manchester United this season.

The 28-year-old forward has endured a stuttering start to life at Old Trafford after joining the Red Devils on loan from Monaco in the summer.

Everywhere he has been he has adapted and excelled, achieved great things

Falcao has missed United’s last three games due to injury but has still managed to score one goal and make two assists.

And Pekerman is backing Colomboa forward Falcao to come good at United in the coming weeks and months.

“Falcao is at one of the best clubs in the world, in one of the best leagues and with one of the best managers under Louis van Gaal,” said Pekerman.

“Playing in England is clearly a new experience for him – but everywhere he has been he has adapted and excelled, achieved great things.

“That was the case in South America and also in Europe in Spain and at Monaco. There is no doubting his ability.

“And I am sure that Manchester United fans will see him at his very best once he has got through this difficult moment with injuries.”
