Radamel Falcao Is A Better Striker Than Wayne Rooney – Louis van Gaal

Manchester United’s Radamel Falcao

Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal admits that he is not yet satisfied with captain Wayne Rooney’s role as a striker, as the Dutch boss suggested that Radamel Falcao could do a better job than Rooney in a striker position.

“We have played well, but can improve, and I was not so satisfied with Rooney as a striker and Mata as midfielder,” Van Gaal said.

“That is why I changed. Rooney can play in more positions, he’s a multi-functional player and I have tried him in a striker’s position. He has played well, but not spectacular. Falcao is a striker and I think he can do it better.”

Despite this, the Red Devils’ manager explained that as captain, Rooney “has more privileges” than the rest of the other players.

“My captain shall always play”, said Van Gaal.
