Manchester United's newest striker, Radamel Falcao, has a parrot who has learned to squawk out "gol de Falca," "great goal," and other celebrations whenever his owner nets a goal, according to The Daily Mail.

Falcao joined Man U on loan from Monaco at the end of the summer transfer window, and put in his first goal for the team over the weekend in a win over Everton.

The Columbian star's wife, Lorelei, told the press that she has taught the bird, named Coco, how to celebrate the striker's many scores.

Considering the $9.6 million United gave up for Falcao, the team is certainly hoping the bird will have plenty to squawk about this season.
