VIDEO: United star Fellaini sends afro wig to 12-year-old fan

Marouane Fellaini of Manchester United and Belgium has made one young fans day.


After completing two deals in as many days this summer it is probably fair to say Manchester United fans are definitely not yet sold on their only summer signing prior to last season.

Marouane Fellaini arrived on Transfer Deadline Day last September after United struggled to bring in other big name targets such as Leighton Baines, Thiago Alcantara and Ander Herrera, who really did make the move this week.

But while United fans are not yet big fans of Fellaini he is massive in Belgium. The country love the afro- adorned, lanky centre midfielder and that emotion increased after the first game at this summer's World Cup.

With Belgium struggling to break down Algeria the Red Devils coach Marc Wilmots sent on Fellaini to try and turn the tide - which he did, scoring the equaliser and changing the complexion of the game.

And now Fellaini, with a little help from his United pal Adnan Januzaj, has been showing off his softer side.

Of course Fellaini is well known for his massive hair - with many fans wearing their own Fellaini style wigs to games.

And one lucky 12-year-old girl was the recipient of a wig from Fellaini in the mail - along with a personalised message.

And she, along with many other Belgium fans wearing the wigs, will hope he blows their tops with a win against USA in the second round.
