Fellaini explains United exit & names favourite in PSG clash
- Fellaini felt it was the right time for a new challenge.
- He left United earlier this month but could've joined PSG last summer.
- He favours United in the Champions League tie against the French side.
Marouane Fellaini left for the China league when his United prospects became bleak with Manchester United and he has no regrets whatsoever.
He told Telefoot: ''I think it was the right time to leave. It had been 10-and-a-half years since I arrived in England. I had beautiful seasons. Now I wanted a new challenge and a new adventure.''
The Belgian was the guest to a quickfire Q&A session in which he briefly revealed he could've joined Paris Saint Germain last summer. He also nodded when asked if he'd have loved to play for Ligue 1 champions.
And now, as United are preparing to meet PSG in the Champions League Round of 16, Fellaini backs the club he did play for.
He said: ''I think Manchester United are the favourites. With the confidence they have at the moment, and how they play, I think they are favourites. But it's a Champions League match, in the round of 16, so it'll be 50-50.
''PSG have great players but they have two or three players injured. I think Manchester United have the advantage.''
