Louis Saha has urged Radamel Falcao to be patient in his recovery from injury.

The Manchester United striker has been struggling with calf and knee problems in recent weeks, hampering his start to life at Old Trafford.

And former United forward Saha feels that Falcao should not push himself too soon as he bids to return to full fitness.

“Sometimes the mistake players make is to push themselves too hard when trying to return from injury,” Saha told Goal.

“Having experienced the same time and pushing myself, I would experience setbacks four or five weeks down the line with the same injury.

“He must take his time and make sure everything is fine and he will have much sharper fitness on the pitch to sustain the pressure and intensity on the pitch.

“Mental strength only gets you so far, you can always play two or three games but after that you will struggle again. It’s a really hard part of football.”
