Phil Neville singled out Marouane Fellaini for special praise for his solid performance for Manchester United in the Europa League final clash against Ajax on Wednesday night.

The Belgian midfielder played the full 90 minutes and produced a combative display as Manchester United claimed the trophy and Champions League football thanks to goals from Paul Pogba and Henrikh Mkhitaryan.

Fellaini has often been criticised for his performances for Manchester United since joining the club back in 2013 when David Moyes was still in charge at Old Trafford.

However, former Red Devils defender Neville was clearly impressed by what he saw from Fellaini in Stockholm on Wednesday night.

Speaking to BBC Radio 5 Live, former Manchester United star Neville said: “Marouane Fellaini was absolutely immense tonight. He took the fight to this Ajax team.

“He has had some criticism but has had to have courage to make his Manchester United career what it is.”
