When David Moyes signed Marouane Fellaini from his old club, Everton FC, he thought he was bringing a top signing to Manchester United. This signing has struggled to pan out thus far, and fans are not impressed with the Belgian international's start.
Marouane Fellani was a highly coveted player who drew interest from other top clubs such as Arsenal and Chelsea, but those clubs must now be pleased with the fact that they have missed out on this signing. Fellani has struggled to fit into the Manchester United lineup, and has been under a lot of scrutiny from fans who haven't accepted him as a proven member.
As if his start wasn't bad enough, the Daily Mail is now reporting that he will be undergoing wrist surgery that will see him sidelined for 7 weeks. With fan patience already very low for David Moyes, this seems to be the latest issue for Manchester United fans to see problems with. Fans on Twitter have found joy through this loss, and have shown their anger towards the Belgian signing.
This news comes just days after Manchester United have brought speculation for their January transfer window targets. Manchester have renewed their interest in Fabio Coentrao, Ander Herrera, and Eliaquim Mangala to ensure fans of their commitment to obtain top talent.
It's safe to say that this comes as a strategic attempt to ease Manchester United fan's suffering from the rough start that Fellani, Moyes, and the squad have endured thus far in the Barclays Premier League.
We're just seven games into the Barclays Premier League season, but Manchester United fans have already hit the panic button with their team sitting in 9th place in the table. For the fans, it's tough to watch the instability within the club after having nearly three decades of consistent quality under Sir Alex Ferguson. For Moyes, it's a tough act to follow, but he knew this type of pressure would come with the territory. We'll have to wait and see how Fellaini recovers from his injury, and if he can come back with a new-found confidence to fit into the Manchester United squad and start finding success. Until then, they both will be the target of constant scrutiny.
