New signing Radamel Falcao was a 67th minute substitute against Queens Park Rangers, which was met by a rousing reception from the Old Trafford faithful.
“Very happy to debut in Old Trafford and for all the support I received from the first day in @ManUtd,” he tweeted.
And the Red Devils romped to a 4-0 win, leaving manager Louis van Gaal happy.
“I said before the game ‘let us make a new start’, the Dutch coach said.
“That’s important as after September 1, after the transfer period, we can now work on a team-building process and make ourselves better every week – we have done it, I believe.”
“The most important thing from today is that we created goals. In the other matches we were the better team on the pitch but we didn’t make goals. Now we have made four goals and that gives a boost to every player.”
“That’s also enormously important [for the fans] as they have had to wait a long time for a good result.”
