Marouane Fellaini keen to impress Man United boss Louis van Gaal
Marouane Fellani is desperate to prove himself to new Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal
Marouane Fellani admits that he is desperate to prove himself under new Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal.
The Belgium international came in for some criticism last season following his move to Old Trafford from Everton under David Moyes.
However, the midfielder says new manager Van Gaal has vowed to let him prove himself this term, despite the competition for places in the Red Devils’ starting line-up.
“I talked to Van Gaal and he has never said that I had to leave,” said Fellaini, who has been out injured with an ankle problem. “He said I had a lot of competition, but that I got the chance to prove it.
“I have known difficult moments last season, but there is a stronger player afterwards. I have confidence in myself and in my game again.
“I played a good World Cup and also during the preparation, I was good. It is unfortunate that this injury is for now just a spanner in the works, but at the end of the month I will be back.”
