Departing Falcao thanks Manchester United fans

The Colombia international is set to return to Monaco after he struggled during his season-long loan spell with the Red Devils, but took time to praise the club’s supporters

Radamel Falcao has expressed his gratitude to Manchester United fans after his frustrating spell at Old Trafford came to an end.

United confirmed that Falcao, who spent the 2014-15 season on loan from Monaco, will not extend his stay with the club after a goalless draw at Hull City on the final day of Premier League season.

The Colombia endured a difficult first experience of English football due to a combination of injuries and failing to secure a regular place in Louis van Gaal’s starting line-up.

Falcao now returns to his parent club Monaco and it remains to be seen where he will be playing at the start of next season, as several teams have been linked with the 29-year-old.

The former Atletico Madrid man showed his appreciation on Monday for the backing he was given by fans during his time at United. 

He wrote on his Instagram: “I wanna thank Manchester United and all its fans for every word and gesture of support they gave me in every match. I’ll never forget it!!”
