Manchester striker Radamel Falcao took to Twitter to express his disgust at recent media reports which suggested the Colombian needed to ice his knee after every training session to prevent further damage.
Media reports showed images of Falcao with an ice pack around his knee in a training session, and proceeded to label the striker an injury concern.
But Falcao has hit out at the rumours, terming them “lies”.
One fool speculates. A few others lacking objectivity respond and millions believe lies. It is disastrous what a few fools can do.

Falcao ruptured his anterior cruciate ligament in January of this year, and although he recovered from it within months, could not make it to the 2014 World Cup despite repeated pleas from the public.
Falcao has yet to settle in at Old Trafford, having played only 251 minutes of football so far after signing on loan for the Red Devils.
Manager Louis Van Gaal has already expressed his desire to see Falcao back to his best, but reiterated that the process could take time as the striker is coming off a serious career-threateneing injury.
Colombia have already confirmed that Falcao will miss the next two internationals with USA and Slovenia. The striker has not played for 3 weeks due to a calf injury, and would not be available for selection for the national side.

Juan Mata blogs about “special win”
If you only have time to visit one blog in a day, make it Juan Mata’s blog. The Spaniard is an accomplished writer and uses the blog as a medium to send across messages to the fans.
Recently, Mata blogged about the 1-0 win over Crystal Palace and the resulting celebrations, terming them as “an explosion of joy”.
“Winning this weekend was very important. We came from a few weeks without victories and these three points take us near the teams at the top, and encourage us to keep working hard and improving our game. Obviously, we know there is still a lot to do in order to get where we want to, but it’s easier when you win.
We are already thinking about the next game, and it’s a big one, in London against Arsenal. I hope we win again and show consistency in our results.”
