Juan Mata has hailed Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao as a “great professional”.

The Colombia international has endured an injury-hit start to his Red Devils career after he joined on a season-long loan from Monaco in September.

However, 26-year-old Falcao has scored one goal in eight Premier League appearances due to a series of niggling injuries since his switch.

And United midfielder Mata has been impressed with the South American’s work ethic despite the striker’s limited impact in the United first-team.

“He is training very well, he is waiting for his opportunity like the great professional he is, like the great team-mate he is,” Mata is quoted as saying by the Express.

Falcao was a second-half substitute as United eased to a 3-0 victory over bitter rivals Liverpool at Old Trafford on Sunday.
