Paul McGrath: Radamel Falcao unhappy at Man United
Paul McGrath doesn't expect Radamel Falcao to stay at Manchester United
Paul McGrath feels Radamel Falcao is unhappy at Manchester United after the striker was hauled off during a 3-1 win at Preston North End on Monday night.
The Colombia international was replaced by midfielder Ashley Young in the second half at Deepdale as Preston North End led 1-0 in the FA Cup fifth-round tie.
It’s certainly not working out for him. You can see his reaction when he got bought off last night, he’s not happy at the club
The 29-year-old forward has scored four goals in 19 games following his loan move from Monaco, but Falcao appears unlikely to remain at Old Trafford beyond the summer.
Former United defender McGrath suggested that the South American is unable to adjust to the style of the Premier League.
“Radamel Falcao is not getting the sort of service he would at other clubs he’s played for,” McGrath told talkSPORT. “United have been a bit nervous and a lot of the team has changed from next season.
“He goes on runs and the ball just doesn’t come to him or it comes to him too quickly and it runs through to the goalkeeper.
“He thrives on little things on the box and even those things aren’t coming off for him at the moment.
“Maybe it’s the pace of English football or the Premier League, but he’s out of sorts.
“It’s certainly not working out for him. You can see his reaction when he got bought off last night, he’s not happy at the club.”
Falcao has scored just one goal in his last seven games in all competitions for the 20-time English champions, netting in a 3-1 victory over Leicester City.
The South American missed last summer’s World Cup in Brazil after the striker suffered a season-ending knee injury in March 2014.
