It’s fair to say that Manchester United fans haven’t always given Marouane Fellaini the easiest time since his £27.5m move from Everton in 2013. The Belgian was jeered by sections of the Old Trafford crowd when introduced as a late substitute against Tottenham Hotspur in December, having conceded a penalty against his old club a week earlier, but Fellaini is clearly trusted by his manager, and has helped United with goals in both of their domestic cup runs this season.
Speaking to Manutd.com regarding his position at the club, Fellaini appears happy and focused on giving everything for the club and his manager:
“I’ve played forward more (this season), which is good. I’ve been scoring for the team so hopefully I can keep going. I have to give everything when the manager gives me that chance. It’s good for my confidence; it’s always good to score a goal.”
“In the last game against Hull we had so many chances but we just didn’t score,” the 29-year-old said. “We’ve drawn a lot, with many chances in the games. We should have won some games like against Hull, Burnley and Stoke. Apart from that, though, we’ve been doing well. We need to make sure in the big games coming up that we win.”
