Alan Shearer tells Manchester United management to help Radamel Falcao

Premier League legend Alan Shearer thinks Louis van Gaal and Ryan Giggs should help struggling Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao, reports the Daily Mail. 

Shearer, who was speaking on Match of the Day last night, has insisted that the Colombian forward isn't getting the help that he support deserves, as he continues to struggle with life on English soil. 

Falcao has scored just four goals in 20 appearances for the Red Devils, with his long term future at the club seemingly in doubt. 

In need

And Shearer believes that he deserves more help from his management, as he said: "I'm thinking to myself, 'Come on Ryan Giggs, come on Louis van Gaal, give him a little bit of help.

"I can't see them screaming at him, telling him to do something different, to run in behind.

"They're certainly not telling him in training during the week because it's happening every single game. He's not getting the help I believe that he should be."

Once again yesterday, as United beat Sunderland by two goals to nil, Falcao once again struggled despite winning a penalty in the second half. 

Looking unlikely 

In truth, though, it's starting to look extremely unlikely that the forward will continue with United for the long term. At the end of the day, the man on loan from Monaco just hasn't delivered the goods for the Red Devils, so must step up sooner rather than later. 

It's certainly unfortunate, but Falcao may well be better off leaving the Theatre of Dreams behind.
