Falcao refutes injury claims


FALCAO-ROONEYMANCHESTER, November 12-Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao has hit out at reports suggesting that he is still nursing a knee injury.

The Colombia international, who is on a season-long loan from French outfit Monaco, has missed the Red Devils’ last four fixtures with a calf complaint.

However, with the 28-year-old ruled out of country’s upcoming friendlies against the USA and Slovenia, rumours have emerged which claim he has not yet recovered from a long-standing knee problem.

Falcao took to social networking site Twitter to dispel the rumours, saying: “One fool speculates. A few others lacking objectivity respond and millions believe lies.

“It is disastrous what a few fools can do.”

Falcao missed Colombia’s World Cup campaign due to the knee injury he suffered at the midway point in the 2013/14 campaign.

He has made just four appearances for United since making the loan switch from Monaco, scoring one goal in the process.
