Falcao cried over U21s drop

Radamel Falcao's former agent claims the Colombian striker has been driven to tears by his Manchester United predicament.

"I am not going to say that he feels happy because he isn't. We talk a lot and we cry together," his former agent Silvano Espindola. "It's not an easy situation because every player wants to play and every goalscorer wants to score goals."

United manager Louis van Gaal has insisted the decision to select him for the under-21s was not a humiliating one for Falcao, but Espindola said the 29-year-old was clearly upset when he and the frontman spoke ahead the match, in which Falcao struggled and was replaced after 71 minutes.

Meanwhile, midfielder Michael Carrick has signed a one-year contract extension.

The 33-year-old has been at Old Trafford since 2006, winning five Premier League titles.
