Football News

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has hit back at reports claiming he needs ice on his knee after every training session, reports the Manchester Evening News.

In fact, the forward - who has missed the Red Devils' last three Premier League fixtures through injury - has branded the reports as 'lies' as he looks to return to full fitness. 

Injury problems

Falcao has, of course, struggled with injury in recent time after initially suffering anterior cruciate ligament damage whilst playing for parent club Monaco at the start of the year. Ultimately, the Colombian hitman missed this past summer's World Cup, and has endured a tricky opening few months at Old Trafford. 

The forward has also been ruled out of Colombia's upcoming fixtures against Slovenia and the United States, but could yet return to the side that takes on Arsenal on November 22. 

Manchester United fans will be hoping to see Falcao at least take up a place on the bench against the Gunners, as he looks to kick start his Old Trafford career.

Struggles in attack 

And, there's no doubt about it, United could do with the Colombian finding his form and fitness in the near future, with the club enduring an inconsistent period. In attack, the club's striker have struggled to prove their credentials in recent time, with Dutchman Robin van Persie the subject of much criticism. 

The striker struggled again this past weekend as the Red Devils secured a 1-0 over Premier League strugglers Crystal Palace and has failed to replicate his form of old under the new regime at Old Trafford. 

Captain Wayne Rooney, meanwhile, has also struggled to hit top form after missing part of the season through suspension. Youngster James Wilson looks set for a bright future, but still has a long way to go to prove himself at the club. 

Falcao, then, will be hoping to prove his credentials in the near future as he targets a long-term future at the Red Devils. It looks set to be a huge couple of months for the striker, but he must get over his constant injury problems.
