How do you judge five years of Fellaini at United?
Football 365's Ian Watson reminds of what the Belgian achieved at United, in case he leaves this summer.
Fans' mixed feelings
"Not for the first time, Manchester United fans are experiencing some confusing feelings about Marouane Fellaini. The big Belgian looks to be entering the final weeks of his Old Trafford career, a prospect that has left many supporters as befuddled as the departing midfielder appears upon hearing a whistle after feeling another opponent connect with the point of his elbow."
From zero to hero and back again
"No United player in recent times has divided opinion or swung from villain to hero and back again quite as often as Fellaini. He is certainly not an inconspicuous target and one of the few constant themes running throughout his five years in Manchester is that life is never dull with the big tree in the centre of the park, even if we haven’t been able to say the same about the football."
EVERY United's manager had faith in Fellaini
"Another recurring theme is the faith his managers place in Fellaini, even if at first they are reluctant to do so. And that, should a last-minute deal fail to be agreed, is what should be remembered. When there was a job to be done, David Moyes, Louis van Gaal and Jose Mourinho invariably sent for Fellaini. It certainly isn’t his fault that many others felt that he was not always the best man for it."
"If he leaves, he will do so on his own terms. For a tree with uncontrollable elbows, you could hardly ask for more."
