Louis van Gaal insists he did not intend to humiliate Radamel Falcao by dropping him to Manchester United’s Under-21 side.

Twenty-four hours after failing to get off the bench for United’s FA Cup quarter-final against Arsenal on Monday, the out-of-form United striker turned out for the club’s second string.

Falcao, who has scored just four goals since his deadline-day loan move from Monaco, drew another blank when he played 72 minutes of the Under-21 draw against Tottenham on Tuesday night.

The United boss insisted he was not punishing the two-time Ballon d’Or nominee for his poor form by selecting him for the game.

“I have read that it was a humiliation, but I don’t think so,” Van Gaal said.
