Radamel Falcao was reportedly seen storming out of Old Trafford shortly after being told he did not make the squad for Manchester United's game against Southampton.
The Colombian striker was omitted from the 18-man squad by Louis van Gaal with rumours of a fresh injury circulating social media. However, the Red Devils boss later confirmed that Falcao was fit to play but had simply not been selected.
For a man valued at over £40 million and earning a wage of £265,000-a-week it is fair to say Falcao would have been surprised by the decision. In fact, it appears as though he may have been very angry indeed.
Not hanging around
Risking a big fine from Van Gaal, Falcao was spotted leaving Manchester United, not staying to see his team eventually lose 1-0 to the Saints. As proof, a photo emerged of Falcao in the Manchester United car park.
The likes of Angel Di Maria, Robin van Persie and Wayne Rooney all failed to get passed Ronald Koeman's men with Dusan Tadic eventually bagging the winner in the second half.

Future in doubt
If true, it will place Falcao's future at Manchester United in serious doubt. There are already suggestions that Van Gaal will opt against making his loan move from AS Monaco permanent after failing to impress thus far. 12 Premier League appearances have reaped just three goals and three assists.
Reports this morning claimed the Dutchman will hold crunch talks with the 28-year-old on Monday to discuss his future role at the club. But there are also doubts as to whether he left Old Trafford at all.
Ian Ladyman of the Daily Mail, tweeted late last night to reveal that Van Gaal had claimed that Falcao had remained in the ground to watch his team play. But he also said there was no sign of the striker with the other Manchester United players in the directors box.
The journalist said: "Cant [sic] see Falcao in directors' box with other squad players. He may well be in private box somewhere. #MUFC".
He later tweeted: "Van Gaal was asked if Falcao stayed to watch the game. He and club PR said he did. #mufc"
