Fellaini 'booed because of Moyes'


Marouane Fellaini says he might be booed by Manchester United supporters because he was signed by former manager David Moyes.

Moyes went back to his former club Everton to make Fellaini his first major signing for United in a £27.5 million deal on the final day of the transfer window in 2013.

The 28-year-old has made 58 Premier League appearances for United but has struggled to win over the fans at Old Trafford, and the Belgian feels that may because he is irrevocably associated with Moyes and the ancien regime.

"My family care more than me," Fellaini said in The Telegraph.

"I am a professional, so I have to deal with it. I try not to listen. Sometimes it is difficult, but that is football and playing for a big club. Sometimes I don't understand it. Why me? I don't know.

"Sometimes, I say yes it is because I joined with David Moyes, sometimes I say no. The truth is I don't know. I know one thing, a lot of people know I work hard on the pitch and for me that's the most important thing."

Manchester United host Everton at Old Trafford on Sunday, and Morgan Schneiderlin says Roberto Martinez's side will prove a tough test as the Red Devils look to secure a top-four finish and a place in next season's Champions League.

"Since Roberto Martinez came, they have been a possession team, they have a lot of possession and have some very good players," he said. "Some fast players, some strong players, some technical players, they have a mix of everything," the Frenchman told MUTV.

"This season, at home they didn’t get many wins, which is strange because Goodison Park has always been a difficult place to go, but they have been good on the road, they’ve lost just once, so it's going to be more challenging because we know they are more comfortable away from home. It's going to be up to us to capitalise on any weaknesses."
