Fellaini Saddened by Moyes Sacking

Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini has revealed his sadness in seeing former Manchester United coach David Moyes relinquished from his duties. The former Everton duo moved from Goodison Park to Old Trafford in the summer after Moyes was hand-picked by Sir Alex Ferguson to succeed him, while the Belgian was Moyes’ first signing at the club,

Fellaini told MUTV: “It was a hard week because I was close with the manager.”

Ryan Giggs has stepped in as interim-manager with a backroom staff compiled of members from the ‘Class of ’92’: Paul Scholes, Phil Neville and Nicky Butt. However, with Dutch Coach, Louis Van Gaal, seemingly set to join the Red Devils at the end of the season, Fellaini will be wondering where his career lies next and if he’ll be in the manager’s plans.

Fellaini has had a difficult start to life at Carrington, struggling to adapt to the magnitude of Manchester United; partially the reason David Moyes failed in his time there. Should either Van Gaal or Giggs take the reigns permanently at Old Trafford, the Belgian may have to sweeten his new manager with improved performances on the pitch.
