Cape Town - Colombian misfit Radamel Falcao can still be a hit at Old Trafford says former Manchester United striker Louis Saha. 

Falcao joined Manchester United on loan in August but has only netted four goals in 19 appearances.

It has been a costly loan deal for United with the striker having joined the club for a reported loan fee of £6 million and wages exceeding £200 000-a-week.

With time running out to convince Louis van Gaal and the club's fans that his loan should be made permanent, Falcao has found an ally in the form of former United striker - Louis Saha.

"I have sympathy for Falcao – I know how hard it is to be a striker,” Saha told Sky Sports.

“There is always a lot of competition at Manchester United. It’s a battle but I have no doubts about him. He has the quality to do a great job there.

"Falcao is under pressure because of his contract and because of the amount of money that’s involved.

"And when you are in a different formation or under different management then you have to adapt. It could take three months, six months or maybe even a year before you understand it – it happens even to the best players.”
