Manchester United have been a little light on midfield options due to a recent injury crisis so the return of Marouane Fellaini from the bench in Saturday’s 2-1 victory over Liverpool must have been a big boost to Jose Mourinho.
The Belgian – who is out of contract at Old Trafford at the end of the season – has seen his season blighted through injury but will hope to remain fit throughout the business end of the campaign, with one eye on a spot at the World Cup in the summer.
He is certainly a divisive figure among United’s fans; some feel he is a useful squad player that Mourinho could do with keeping around, while others view him as an emblem of mediocrity and not close to the standard required from an Old Trafford midfielder.
Fellaini is valued at £10.8m by Transfermarkt and is certainly keen to catch the eye upon his return and revealed his new hairstyle ahead of United’s crunch Champions League clash with Sevilla.
