Manchester United flop Marouane Fellaini has said that he will come good next season after a disastrous debut campaign at Old Trafford.
The Belgian midfielder was a late signing last summer under David Moyes, who brought him with him from Everton for £27.5m after missing out on a host of top targets.
Fellaini was thought of as one of the Premier League’s top attacking midfielders prior to his arrival, yet he has found the step up to a top-level club problematic.
But the big-haired and combative star says that he will show his worth next season once he has a full pre-season and time to prepare at United:
“I will look to show what I can do next season.” He told The Telegraph.
“It was difficult because for two months I did the preparation with Everton and I didn’t know if I would go or not. But in the end I wanted my transfer and I signed for Manchester United. It was a lot of stress but good in the end.”
Fellaini also blamed injury problems for making his start to life at United a stuttering one:
“I was injured for three months and that was a difficult moment for me. When you arrive in a new team you want to play, you want to stay with the team and when you can’t play it is difficult to see the team – even off the pitch.
“When this season finishes I will start with my preparation for the next year and it will be good.”
