In terms of reading up on United’s heritage, Rondon spoke to Faustino Asprilla for advice. “I watched him, growing up in South America. Everyone knows what he did here.
“The goals he scored for the club and the hat trick against Barcelona. That was big because in Venezuela, in fact the whole of South America, everyone loves football. He played for Colombia national team. I spoke with him and had a few words and he told me it was a great city for my family.
“He told me it was a great city for his family too. He told me the fans will be proud of the payers if they work hard. We have things in common, I try to score goals. It is important to the supporters that you work really really hard. I will try to do well but the first thing is the team.”
