Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini claims that he is being unfairly treated in English football due to his reputation for being a physical player. The Belgian has already received three sending-off in his time in English football. He was also found guilty of elbowing Robert Huth back in 2016. This forced him to spend three matches on the sidelines. Fellaini last received a red card when he played in the Manchester derby back in April. This is one of the several incidents involving the Belgian, who is coming to the final few months of his Manchester United career.
Fellaini was expected to leave Old Trafford back in the summer, but Jose Mourinho chose to offer him a one-year contract extension against the wishes of most fans. However, it looks highly unlikely that Fellaini will receive another contract in the next few months. The midfielder came in from Everton for around £ 27 million under the regime of David Moyes. He has started only three Premier League matches this season and has appeared in a further six as a substitute. In comparison, he featured in 18 games from the start last season and made further 10 substitute appearances in the Premier league.
At 30 years of age, United will not be inclined to sign him on for a few more years given that the club are strong in the centre of the park. “They have labelled me an aggressive player, a murderer. Look, I’m fanatical. The team that wants it the hardest wins but there have been times when I came out as the villain. What should I do if they pull me by the hair? It sounds like a joke, but it really hurts. Last season I was suspended after the derby against City for a headbutt against Aguero. He stepped towards me and then dropped dead. But, no, I get the red,” said Marouane Fellaini.
