Radamel Falcao To Wear #9 For Manchester United

Filed under: EPL News, Highlights, Videos, and Scores | English Premier League Highlights, Soccer News

~~  Why does it feel like people are forgetting how good Falcao is?  Is it because of the torn ACL earlier this year that forced him to miss out on the World Cup in Brazil?

Just a refresher :: 11 goals in 20 games at Monaco (2 goals in 3 games 2014/15 already) and 52 goals in 68 games at Atletico Madrid.  And don’t forget about his 9 goals in 13 World Cup Qualifying games for Colombia…..

Check out some behind the scenes action of Real Madrid’s first interview with Chicharito and his first time stepping on the pitch after being presented in the president’s box. “Little Pea’ is most likely with Real to provide backup for Karim Benzema. Real have an option to buy the 26-year-old at the end of the season.

chicharito first real madrid interview

* Nice knot.

The kid seems genuinely excited to be there saying things like, “Playing for Real Madrid is a dream come true” … and “I’ve come here to belong to Real Madrid and I’m delighted to be at this club.”

He made it pretty clear that he’s been a Real Madrid fan for a long time and wants to do everything that he can to help them continue to win.

“You’re going to see a decisive, determined Javier, a professional on and off the field, and I’ll try to repay the trust placed in me. What we want is to win titles and we’ll work hard for it.”
