Confirmed: Man United striker Radamel Falcao suffers ‘new injury’

Manchester United new signing Radamel Falcao has picked up a fresh injury and will be out for another two weeks, says Louis van Gaal.

The Colombian forward hasn’t featured for the Red Devils since the 2-2 draw at West Bromwich Albion last month due to some discomfort in his left knee and is yet to play a full 90 minutes for the Old Trafford club.

However, United boss Louis van Gaal told club’s official television channel MUTV that the 28 year old will be out of action for another two weeks.

That means the striker will miss Premier League clash with Arsenal on Saturday and the home games against Hull and Stoke on November 29 and December 2 respectively.

Falcao has only scored one goal in five appearances since joining the Red Devils on loan from Monaco over the summer and he could be available next month when United will travel to Southampton on December 8.
