Manchester United’s Marouane Fellaini asked about his best position

Marouane Fellaini

Marouane Fellaini says that he is willing to play anywhere for Manchester United.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has said that he is willing to play in any position.

The 26-year-old has been deployed both behind the striker and in defensive midfield in his United career so far.

David Moyes played him as a holding midfielder last season, and his successor Louis van Gaal has deployed him in a similar role but with a licence to move forward.

Fellaini, though, remains open to play anywhere and told Inside United: ‘It depends on the manager.

'Sometimes he might play me defensively but recently I have been played more offensively. It depends on the games and the manager. I enjoy all the positions… especially when we win’.

During his time at Everton, Fellaini was largely deployed as a second striker where he could show his creativity and craft hances for his teammates.

The £27.5 million United signing is unlikely to be given that role anytime soon by Van Gaal, who has a number of players for that position.

Van Gaal has already spoken of the ‘physical presence’ that Belgium international Fellaini gives to the team, and perhaps he will play him in central midfield in an all-round role as the season progresses.

It is an undisputed fact that Fellaini was a ‘flop’ last season, but so far this term he has been a success.

In six Premier League appearances, the former Standard Liege star has scored one goal and created four chances, while having a 88% pass accuracy and a 56% shot accuracy.
