If Manchester United's new superstar striker Radamel Falcao is to endear himself to supporters in England, he had better start brushing up on his English.

The Colombian, while attempting to plug the Red Devils' home game against Queens Park Rangers (QPR) to the 6.72 million followers on his Twitter page, made a hash out of QPR's name.

Queens was spelt Qeens, while he somehow mixed up Rangers with Rogers.

The 6 million pounds (S$12.3 million) deadline-day loan signing from Monaco made his Old Trafford bow in the 66th minute, but by then United were already cruising with a four-goal lead and the hitman had scant chances to make his mark.

With Leicester City their next opponents, it could be another tricky spelling challenge for the 28-year-old.
