Marouane Fellaini was never going to win over every Manchester United fan. But he certainly made an impact during his time at Old Trafford.
Forever remembered as David Moyes’ first signing at United, the Belgian international ultimately racked up 177 games for the Red Devils.
He also popped up with some vital goals and was the go-to Plan B for three consecutive managers. Unfortunately for Fellaini, Ole Gunnar Solskjaer had other ideas.
The Norwegian quickly shipped out the 31-year-old, who now plays for Chinese side SD Luneng. So how is the Belgian international getting on with his new club?
It has been hit-and-miss so far, with Fellaini scoring the winning goal on his debut but yet to enjoy victory since.
The former United midfielder wasted little time proving his worth. It was his strike against BJ Renhe that sealed a 1-0 win in early March.
But Fellaini’s new club have not won since. Three consecutive 2-2 draws – two of which Fellaini played every minute of – could have been worse.
Yet the simple fact is Fellaini has a very different challenge ahead. From United’s battering ram to one of the Chinese Super League’s newest imports, his adventure continues.
