Believe it or not, someone other than José Mourinho feels hurt following Manchester United’s decision to sack the Portuguese tactician.
Everyone else at Old Trafford seems to be in high spirits, smiling and playing better football.
Having played just three minutes since Ole Gunnar Solskjaer replaced Mourinho on December 19, the possibility of Marouane Fellaini leaving Old Trafford shouldn’t be ruled out.
Belgian newspaper Net Nieuwsblad claims AC Milan are ‘back in the running’ for Fellaini, with FC Porto and Chinese Super League side Guangzhou Evergrande also monitoring the player’s situation. (H/t Sport Witness)
Fellaini renewed his contract at United in June following plentiful speculation over his future, signing a two-year extension with the option of an additional year, as reported by the Manchester Evening News.
The decision to give Fellaini a new deal was a controversially one, heavily backed by Mourinho, who likes the idea of filling his teams with physical giants even if mobility is lost as a result.
Perhaps Mourinho will snap up Fellaini wherever he manages next? Surely he can’t leave the Belgium international feel ‘hurt’ in his absence…
