Marouane Fellaini praised for helping lady in crowd during Hull City match

Marouane Fellaini is in the process of transforming his reputation in the eyes of the Manchester United supporters.

The Belgium international has, at times this season, looked a completely different player under Jose Mourinho, who has helped the midfielder rediscover his confidence since replacing Louis van Gaal earlier this summer.

And Fellaini, who showed good discipline to avoid a second booking following a 23rd-minute yellow card during Saturday’s 1-0 victory over Hull City, further endeared himself to the United faithful with his actions during the chaotic celebrations following Marcus Rashford’s winner.

As the fans pushed their way towards the front, jubilant with the stoppage-time winner, Fellaini noticed a lady struggling towards the front.

A photo shows the midfielder pointing to her in the crowd, before reaching in and helping her.

The man is superhero.

Fellaini helps the lady in the crowd

“Well done Fellaini for helping out a lady in the #MUFC crowd after fans spilled over the barrier celebrating!#HULMUN,” tweeted the Daily Mirror’s Charlotte Hodges.

And then Fellaini responded...

Fellaini himself suffered a back injury

Unfortunately, though, Fellaini himself suffered what Mourinho has described as a “bad” back injury during the match and could now be out of action for up to a month.

"I am going to lose Fellaini for a while,” Mourinho confirmed in his post-match press conference. “He has a muscle injury in his back and it is not good."

Fellaini to miss the Manchester derby?

Fellaini could now miss United’s clash against local rivals Manchester City on September 10.

Few fans would have been disappointed had that been the case at the start of the season, but it’s credit to Fellaini that he’s proving his doubters wrong this term.
