Ole Gunnar Solskjaer’s spell in charge at Manchester United has been like a dream so far.
Except for one man, it’s been a bit of a nightmare, Marouane Fellaini.
Fellaini was one of former boss Jose Mourinho’s most trusted players. To be fair, Mourinho managed to get the best out of him and made Fellaini a fairly useful contributor.
Solskjaer clearly does not feel the same way.
During five league games in charge, Fellaini has played just three minutes out of a possible 450.
He was a 87th minutes substitute against Cardiff, and an unused sub against Huddersfield and Bournemouth.
Against Newcastle and Tottenham, Fellaini was not even picked to make the bench.
In between he featured against Reading in the FA Cup, but as a substitute. He wasn’t even selected in the changed XI.
It’s hard to argue with the results without Fellaini. United have won six out of six in all competitions and the Belgian has not been needed.
If a club made an offer for Fellaini now, United would have to strongly consider selling.
The Mirror report United are open to offers, ready to cash in at around £15 million.
The way it is going though, it seems like Fellaini has little future at United while Solskjaer is in charge. And if United keep winning, he could be in charge for a long time.
