51-cap England international Teddy Sheringham has suggested his former club Manchester United may not have best utilised Radamel Falcao last season but insists the Colombian still represents a major roll of the dice for Jose Mourinho.
Speaking in an exclusive interview for 888sport.com the new Stevenage FC boss remains unconvinced on the summer move involving two of the Premier League’s heavyweights and a formerly lethal hit-man now in danger of becoming a misfit.
“It is a gamble. From Falcao’s point of view he had a couple of injuries last year and didn’t have the best of form. Either Mourinho has seen something in him that other people haven’t or maybe Man United didn’t use him in the best way. Whatever it is Chelsea will be looking to exploit that. He’s obviously a top footballer so it’s just about getting the best out of him.”
Sheringham was talking ahead of the season’s opener this Saturday that involves two of his former clubs, Tottenham Hotspur and Manchester United.
