Manchester United’s Radamel Falcao more confident following treble for Colombia

Manchester United striker Radamel Falcao recently revealed he’s growing in confidence after scoring three goals for Colombia in two recent internationals against Bahrain and Kuwait, reports Sky Sports.

The 29-year-old is currently on loan at United from parent club AS Monaco this season, with the Red Devils having the option to make the deal permanent in the summer. However, with just four goals to his name in 22 games, it’s unlikely manager Louis van Gaal will look to sign the striker for good at the end of the current campaign.

He’s recently lost his place in the United side as a result of his poor form, which at the time made him low on confidence, but he’s now feeling back to normal following three goals on international duty. The former Porto and Atletico Madrid striker scored two goals against Bahrain, with Colombia winning 6-0, and netted one against Kuwait in a 3-1 win on Monday.

Falcao revealed how his confidence levels have risen following his antics for the South American outfit, and how he’s looking forward to ending the season strongly with Manchester United to put himself in the shop window for any suitors in the summer.

“When I score it’s always important and that gives me confidence. I said before I need minutes, I need to play games in a row and here in the national team I have had the opportunity. Now I return to Manchester with more confidence. When the season finishes I am going to sit and think about my future and what is the best for my career,” he said.
