Manchester United fans cant quite believe how good Marouane Fellaini on Friday, as the towering Belgian played a huge part in lifting his side past Brazil.
Manchester United fans were less than impressed when Fellaini signed a new contract with the club, but his performance against Brazil seems to have won them over.
To some fans, the 30 year-old represents everything bad about Jose Mourinho, brought on by the Portuguese tactician to hoof balls into the box when the going gets tough.
However, the lanky ex-Everton man played in midfield for Belgium in their 2-1 win over Brazil, and put in an absolute shift alongside Axel Witsel.
Fellaini and Witsel were basically tasked with work of more than two players, as the likes of Eden Hazard and Kevin De Bruyne were allowed to roam freely, meaning the two in midfield had to do an incredible amount of defending.
The divisive Red Devil did just that, winning a ridiculous seven aerial duels, as well as three tackles, three clearances and two interceptions.
Fans liked what they saw, and they’re hoping the performance may breathe new life into his Old Trafford career.

Have to give it to Marouane Fellaini, what a performance that was. Thwarted Brazil’s main creative players and got in the way of everything. Can see why managers do love him.

I never thought I’d say it but I was so proud of #Fellaini today. Dominant in the air (as usual) and was a handful in midfield. Hope that Mourinho is taking notes. Btw Martinez for next Utd coach. #BELBRA

When you need a plan B, he’s the perfect player. Definitely a game changer.
