£27million flop claims he is good enough for Manchester United

Manchester United flop Marouane Fellaini has claimed he is good enough to be a regular in manager Louis van Gaal’s squad, Daily Star reports.

Fellaini was a £27million deadline day purchase last summer but the Red Devils were already keen to offload the midfielder, but talks with Napoli broke down after the towering Belgian sustained an ankle injury.

However now that the transfer window has closed, Fellaini insists he is capable of replacing other stars to be in the starting XI.

He said: “I want to fight for my place. The coach wants to play with the eleven players who make the best team. I want to be part of that.

“I’ve had a meeting with the coach before the start of the season where he told me that there is a lot of competition in the midfield.

“I told him that I wanted to compete for a place in the starting eleven.”

With the additions of Radamel Falco, Ander Herrera, Angel di Maria, Marcos Rojo, Luke Shaw, and Daley Blind, playing regularly at Old Trafford may be too tall an order.

And although the 26-year-old was deemed surplus to requirements by his boss, Fellaini still had nice comments for Van Gaal.

“I think he is a good coach who organises a lot of team meetings,” he continued.

“He also analyses much – opponents, our own players at training, everyone. Everywhere he has been, he was successful.”
