During the 2016/17 season, it felt like Marouane Fellaini really turned a corner at Manchester United.

Still considered a symbol of David Moyes' disastrous reign as manager, Fellaini has been ridiculed throughout his time at Old Trafford.

Things got so bad last term, the midfielder was even booed by his own supporters as he came on as a substitute during a game vs Tottenham, a week after he gave away a costly penalty against Everton.

Nevertheless, Jose Mourinho stuck by the Belgian and gradually he earned the trust of the Man United fans with a string of decent performances towards the end of the season.

And heading into Mourinho's second season in charge, Fellaini is expected to be a key member of the squad.

The Red Devils are currently in America preparing for the new campaign and take on Real Salt Lake in the second game of the tour in the early hours of Tuesday morning.

But United fans caught a glimpse of the 'old' Fellaini during a training drill which the club posted on Twitter.


Various Man United players were involved in a slick-looking pass and move drill when the ball eventually came to Fellaini.

The 29-year-old tried to hit a first-time pass down the line, only to skew it straight towards a coach and then an unfortunate photographer - see the video below.

Right at the end of the clip, you might just be able to catch Anthony Martial's reaction in the background.

Not sure we've seen Martial smile that much since he joined the club.

United fans, however, weren't as impressed and couldn't help but fear the worst for Fellaini. Here are the best tweets:
