Biography

Marouane Fellaini joined Manchester United from Everton in September 2013 and his hearty performances have earned him plenty of plaudits.

The big-haired Belgian followed David Moyes to Old Trafford to become the first major signing of the former manager’s reign, as he looked to add a strong physical presence to his midfield. It was the second time the then Reds boss had acquired Fellaini, having previously brought him to Everton in 2008. That deal saw the Toffees pay a then club-record fee to the midfielder’s boyhood club Standard Liege for his services. ‘Felli’, as he’s known by his team-mates, endured a testing first campaign as a Red as he took time to adapt, while the team as a whole struggled to replicate previous successes on the pitch. However, after a string of fine performances for Belgium in the 2014 World Cup, the powerful midfielder carried his form into the 2014/15 season, making a valuable contribution in the engine room and also chipping in with his fair share of goals. After another good season in 2015/16, Fellaini capped off the season in style by netting in the FA Cup semi-final win over Everton and playing the full 120 minutes at Wembley as United beat Crystal Palace to claim the trophy. And there were better things to come, as the Belgian rewarded Jose Mourinho’s faith in him in 2016/17 with several key contributions, including goals in both the League Cup semi-final against Hull City and the Europa League semi-final second leg against Celta Vigo. In 2017/18, his fifth season at United, Fellaini was often brought on as an impact sub and provided an effective aerial threat. The midfielder opened his account for the campaign against Leicester City before heading in the first goal against Basel in the UEFA Champions League. A knee injury as well as surgery in the winter curtailed most of the season for 'Felli', but he returned to the squad for the end of the season, notably scoring an injury-time winner against Arsenal at Old Trafford. On 29 June 2018, the day after Fellaini helped Belgium to beat England in a World Cup group game, the club announced he had signed a new contract to keep him at United until June 2020, with the option to extend for a further year.
