Marouane Fellaini's Manchester United future in doubt

Published 2 Comments

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini faces a fight for his Old Trafford future after failing to get off the bench in the club's first pre-season clash with Club America yesterday. 

This has been reported by the Mirror, who claim that the Belgian international faces a fight to save his United career after picking up a red card on the final day of the 2014/15 campaign in the club's 0-0 draw with relegated Hull City.

Ultimately, then, Fellaini will miss United's opening three Premier League fixtures, meaning Red Devils chief Louis van Gaal is reluctant to hand him game time throughout the club's tour of the US.

In fact, with the Dutch boss making 11 changes at half-time in the club's first pre-season fixture, only Fellaini and youngster Sean Goss failed to feature.

Fellaini, then, despite being one of the club's standout players last time round, has it all to do to prove his credentials at the club club all over again.

There's a place for Fellaini 

There's no doubt about it, Fellaini's red card at the end of the last campaign is a major blow for the player, who enjoyed a brilliant second season in Manchester.

But, despite the Mirror's claim, there should be a place for the towering Belgian in the United squad for the upcoming campaign. 

Ok, with the array of talent already plying their trade at the club, it won't be easy for the ex-Everton man to star week in, week out, but he most certainly will be needed throughout the course of the campaign. With United back in Europe's elite competition, too, Fellaini will no doubt be handed opportunities to show what he can do once again.
