Former Newcastle and Colombia star Faustino Asprilla has told English media that he thinks new Manchester United signing Radamel Falcao will be a star in the Premier League.
Asprilla scored 20 goals in 57 caps for the South Americans, and was seen as one of the best in the world whilst at Parma, before making a big money move to England with Newcastle.
And the 44-year-old believes that his fellow Colombian Falcao will make a big impact in the Premier League, after signing on a mega money loan deal from Ligue 1 side AS Monaco.
Asprilla told Sky Sports that despite El Tigre suffering a serious knee injury in January which ruled him out of this year's World Cup in Brazil, the striker will recover and make a big impact at Old Trafford.
"Falcao is a great goalscorer, a natural finisher and he is among the best in the world in that position," said the 44 year old.
"He will be physically fine, because he has had ample time to recover and his therapy has been great so he should be 100 per cent.
“I think it’s fair to say Falcao’s move to Manchester United took everybody by surprise but I’m sure they have selected the right man to help the team, and I’m sure he will do very well for Manchester United."
Falcao is expected to make his debut for the Red Devils on Saturday as they host Queens Park Rangers in the Premier League.
