Heading into the Premier League match against Southampton tonight, Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal revealed the ongoing concerns surrounding the fitness of striker Radamel Falcao.

The Colombian, who arrived on loan at Old Trafford amid much fanfare, is yet to make an impact at Manchester United where he has so far scored just one goal. He may have to wait longer yet to do so according to Van Gaal, who revealed that Falcao is incapable of playing for more than 20 minutes at a time.

The striker has come off the bench in United's last two matches and it seems that is likely to be the role he continues to play.

"I have selected him in spite of the fact he can only play for 20 minutes," said Van Gaal.
