Manchester United players warned by Fellaini

Marouane FellainiManchester United players are in for a tough time from David Moyes, according to Marouane Fellaini.

Moyes has replaced Sir Alex Ferguson at Old Trafford but if United players thought they would be able to get off lightly under the new boss they had better think again.

Belgium international Fellaini has worked under Moyes for the last four years and he has felt the full force of his ire on occasion and he warned United players not to expect an easy ride.

“He is a decent man, a great manager, but believe me he can be tough. If you want to win something, to create a good team you have to be hard sometimes with the players – football is like this,” he told the Mirror.

“He can be scary.

“I remember when I was banned after the Stoke game, he gave everyone the day off – everyone: the players, the entire staff – but I came to the training camp to do a training session with him.

“It was just me and him, and it is not easy to go into the camp to face him like that.

“I understood, because I knew I had made a mistake, but you know it’s not easy when you know you have let him down. Just going in there knowing you have to look him in the eye was hard!”
