Football Funnies: Manchester United ace Radamel Falcao's biggest fan - a pet parrot who squawks when he scores

Manchester United and Radamel Falcao fans unfamiliar with their new hotshot's pet preferences must surely be now.

This, after The Sun reported that the Colombian striker owns a pet parrot named Coco who celebrates every goal its owner scores with a phrase from its impressive vocabulary.

Falcao's wife Lorelei told the paper: "'My parrot says, 'goal from Falca', 'great goal' and more."

After being forced to remain quiet for Falcao's first three games with the Red Devils, Coco finally uttered its trademark celebrations when he fired in the winning goal in a 2-1 win over Everton last Sunday.

We're expecting plenty more noise from Coco in the coming weeks if Falcao finds his shooting range.
