Radamel Falcao has a pet parrot called Coco that squawks "Gol de Falca" each time he scores.

The striker, on loan at Manchester United from Monaco, scored his first goal for the Old Trafford club on Sunday, the winning goal in the 2-1 victory over Everton, creating much joy for his flying friend.

Falcao's wife, Lorelei, 26, was quoted in The Sun as saying: "My parrot says, 'goal from Falca, great goal' and more."

And to further endear himself to the United faithful, Coco's green and yellow colours match the original colours of the original United back when the club was called Newton Heath.

The Colombian striker signed for United on loan in August, and reports claim that he will make his move permanent for £43m in January. How his neighbours must hope doesn't replicate the prolific form he showed in France.
