The ball is mightier than the sword: Man Utd’s Falcao, Mata and Rojo do battle with freestyling Red Samurai

Manchester United stars Radamel Falcao, Juan Mata and Marcos Rojo showed off their best footballing tricks and flicks – by pitting themselves against a samurai warrior.

The Red Samurai, who MM revealed earlier this week was in fact a member of CUBE, a Japanese freestyle soccer team, is part of a new sponsorship deal with Nissin Foods and the club.

Nissin’s partnership with United was announced in July and has already seen their products advertised by some of the club’s biggest stars, including Robin van Persie.

And the trio decided to do battle against the ancient warrior and show off their own range of skills.

This is not the first time the Red Samurai has shown off his footballing freestyle abilities after kicking his way through Manchester as part of an online campaign.

The masked warrior also graced the pitch at Old Trafford on Sunday, and could be a lucky charm, as the Reds recorded their first win of the season, a 4-0 thumping against QPR.

The company Nissin is still relatively unknown in the UK, but is hoping to branch out with their cup noodle range.
