Radamel Falcao is great professional, says Man United star
Juan Mata praises Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao
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.
