Radamel Falcao took to social media on the eve of Chelsea’s Champions League opener to send a message of support to Luke Shaw after the Manchester United defender’s horror leg break on Tuesday night.

The former Southampton star suffered the injury midway through the first half of United’s Champions League group-stage clash against PSV Eindhoven and underwent surgery in the Netherlands on Tuesday night.

The horrific nature of the injury inevitably prompted a huge outpouring of support for the defender on social media.

And former Manchester United striker Falcao, who is now on loan at Chelsea, used his Instagram account to wish Shaw all the best.

Falcao shared the picture above on his personal Instagram account and wrote: “Stay strong @LukeShaw23. All the best and I wish you recover soon.”
