Fellaini's confession: 'First signing since Ferguson left'

Marouane Fellaini reflects on his debut season at Manchester United.


Fellaini is a tall Belgian midfielder. He arrived at United after a stellar 2012-13 season at Everton. His goalscoring ability for a midfielder, his natural physicality allowed him to play a big role in midfield battles, and his ability to compete for aerial balls was overwhelming.


Fellaini moved from Everton to United under David Moyes. When former manager Sir Alex Ferguson stepped down, Moyes was named as his successor. Fellaini also followed his gift to Manchester.


The first season was a disaster. The Red Devils, who had been winning the league every season, let alone finishing in the top three, dropped to seventh place after just one season. Moyes was sacked after less than a full season, and Fellaini was sidelined for over two months due to a mid-season injury.


"Fellaini has revealed that his first season at United was the worst of his career, but he said he did not hold a grudge against Moyes," the Mirror reported on April 28.


Fellaini said: "My first season at United was very difficult for me. I was the first signing after the Ferguson era and it was not easy. It was difficult for me, but it was also difficult for United. We had a bad season, a nightmare season for a few months," he said.


Fellaini added: "I will never criticize Moyes because he gave me a chance. I played almost every game under Moyes during my time at Everton," he added. Fellaini started the 토토 season as a substitute after his move to United. In the 35 games Moyes played before he was sacked, Fellaini started just 11 of them. There could have been lingering negative feelings due to not being given enough playing time, but Fellaini denies this.


After Moyes' departure, Fellaini remained at United on his own for five more seasons before moving to Shandong Luneng. His career in China is in its twilight years, and he announced his retirement from active football earlier this month.
