‘A new challenge’: Boss suggests that Manchester United star leaves in January


Bad luck

You have to feel little sorry for Marouane Fellaini.

After his first season at Manchester United most thought that it was simply a matter of time before he was sold.

Indeed, the injury that he sustained in pre-season 2014/15 is perhaps the only thing that kept him at the club as he wouldn’t have been able to do a medical as part of any transfer.

But he showed real balls to fight back and actually become a very popular figure at Manchester United by the end of last season.

Some view his suspension – handed out last season but served at the start of this – as the reason that he isn’t in the team right now.

But we feel that he doesn’t suit Louis’s 4-2-3-1 system. And he is now thought of as the ‘plan b’ – the towering player whose height can cause problems if Manchester United are chasing a game with 10 minutes to go.

He’s better than that of course but his national coach, Marc Wilmots, feels that it may be time to move on. He said:

“Fellaini could play to support the attack, as the No.6. He has very good technique, very good ability to track back and recover. Maybe he will try to find a new challenge in January, if it is possible.”

We think that the Belgian should be patient. Injuries are unavoidable in a long, successful season and with Manchester United looking toward the knockout phase of The Champions League and a title charge, Fellaini will surely get 20 plus games this season if he stays.
