Manchester United Football Club take to the field next weekend, and we’re now halfway through the first dreaded international break of the season. Jose Mourinho’s side wouldn’t have wanted it to come as they were in great form – but unfortunately, that’s just a part of football.
The Red Devils went into the domestic hiatus with a squad looking in pretty good shape in terms of injuries. However, Marouane Fellaini missed Belgium’s game against Gibraltar due to a ‘minor injury’ which must have left Mourinho sweated.
Now, though, the manager has eased those fears, as he told the media that he is sharp and ready to play in Belgium’s game against Greece.
“I was talking about Marouane this morning,” Mourinho said, as per the Manchester Evening News’ liveblog.
“He is sharp, fit and eager. That’s a boost with a view to Greece.”
Fellaini has turned into a much-improved player under the self-proclaimed Special One, and seriously, he deserves an awful lot of credit.
There have always been large portions of the Manchester United fanbase on his back for one reason or another, but he’s just shut them out and continued to work. He’s already made a positive impact on this season, too, scoring the all-important second goal in our victory over Leicester City at the weekend.
