Colombia coach Jose Pekerman says that he has no doubts that Radamel Falcao will prove to be a success for Manchester United.

The striker has struggled with injuries since joining United on a season-long loan from Monaco this summer, and is currently sidelined with a calf problem.

"Falcao is at one of the best clubs in the world, in one of the best leagues and with one of the best managers under Louis van Gaal," he told reporters.

"Playing in England is clearly a new experience for him - but everywhere he has been he has adapted and excelled, achieved great things.


"That was the case in South America and also in Europe in Spain and at Monaco. There is no doubting his ability.

"And I am sure that Manchester United fans will see him at his very best once he has got through this difficult moment with injuries."
