Manchester United Football Club won their third consecutive league game yesterday evening, as Jose Mourinho’s team seem to finally be finding their feet. The game as a whole was a supremely convincing team performance, and credit has to go to everyone in the squad for that.
During the last home game against Spurs, when the manager saw fit to bring on Marouane Fellaini from off of the substitutes bench, the big Belgian was subject to a few boos and jeers from a handful of idiots.
However, Fellaini was brought on the field against West Bromwich Albion yesterday, and this time he was given a much warmer welcome from the travelling Manchester United faithful.
This obviously pleased Jose, so-much-so he felt the need to praise the fans for it whilst speaking to MUTV shortly after the victory.
“The fans are fantastic. They had just an impulsive reaction because of Marouane’s naïve reaction against Everton but they know that Marouane is a guy that gives absolutely everything – inside the dressing room people love the guy and it’s important for him to get that good feeling of knowing the fans are behind [him].” Jose Mourinho told MUTV after the game.
It was just a daft mistake, and I certainly feel sorry for Marouane. He is a useful player when the situation is right, and he does get a lot of unfair stick from some sections of the fans at times.
Is he your typical Manchester United player? Of course he isn’t, but when called upon he has done by far more good than harm in my opinion. Heck, he’s done way more than Morgan Schneiderlin has for this club, yet somehow, the Frenchman doesn’t get any stick whatsoever.
Fair play to Fellaini for not letting it get him down, and now he has to keep working hard to try and force his way back into Jose’s starting eleven.
