One of Louis Van Gaals most memorable early quotes “Now I Am The Devil Of Manchester” may have just come true as Diego Maradona thinks Louis Vaan Gaal is ‘close to the devil’ in regards to his treatment of Falcao.
Devilish: Maradona is unimpressed by Van Gaal’s treatment of Falcao
The Colombian poster boy moved to Old Trafford on a season-long loan from Monaco last summer, but has severely struggled for form and fitness and has only scored 4 goals all season.
Falcao remains likely to leave the club in the summer, with plenty o European Giants keen to do a deal in the hope he rediscovers his fine goalscoring form of old.
Despite his difficulties, Maradona – has shown sympathy with the £285,000-a-week striker.
“Van Gaal is closer to the devil than anything” blasts Maradona
“Falcao’s time was cut short after the injury and he has had to adapt to the move.”
Falcao, who was the poster boy of Colombian football before being ruled out of the World Cup, spent the summer suffering from knee ligament damage before his move to United.
Falcaos misery is set to continue as it seems more than likely he will remain on the bench for tomorrow’s Manchester Derby against City.
