Falcao relishes United debut

16 September 2014, 08:32

Manchester - Radamel Falcao has thanked Manchester United's fans after making his debut at the "extraordinary" Old Trafford.

Falcao came off the bench in the 67th minute of United's 4-0 win at home to QPR in the Premier League on Sunday but was unable to find the back of the net in a match where the goals were shared between Angel di Maria, Ander Herrera, Wayne Rooney and Juan Mata.

Now the Colombian striker, who made a transfer deadline day loan move from Monaco for a reported €10 million, will look to score his first goal for United against Leicester this coming weekend.

"It felt good to make my debut at Old Trafford," he said.

"It is an extraordinary stadium, a legendary stadium and I am happy to get the win. I will enjoy this moment."

Falcao almost got on the scoresheet when, 15 minutes after he had come on and with United 4-0 up, he saw QPR keeper Robert Green spill Daley Blind's shot.

However, Green recovered to block Falcao's follow-up.

"I want to say thank you to the fans. I enjoyed the welcome a lot. It was fantastic," Falcao said.

"I almost scored. The goalkeeper was good. I hope to score the next game."

"I hope everything continues for us like it did on Sunday."
