Tottenham Hotspur star Mousa Dembele has told The Guardian that Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is an unbelievable player.

Dembele and Fellaini are Belgium international teammates and will feature at the Euro 2016 finals in France this month.

The Tottenham midfielder is behind the United man, Axel Witsel and Radja Nainggolan in the pecking order for Belgium, but he understands the situation and is ready to fight for his place.

“Witsel and Nainggolan – they change all the time,” Dembele told The Guardian. “It’s Fellaini and one of the [other] two. And all three are unbelievable players.

“I fight for my spot, of course. I try to do whatever and for the rest, I can’t do much more.”

Dembele has often struggled for consistency, but he had a truly brilliant season for Tottenham in 2015-16.

The Belgium international midfielder scored three goals and created 28 chances in 29 Premier League appearances for Spurs this past season.

The 28-year-old had a pass accuracy of 90% and a shot accuracy of 56%, and won 30 headers, 83 dribbles and 84 tackles.

Fellaini has yet to fully convince at United, although perhaps partly that is because he has not always been played in one position.

The former Everton midfielder scored one goal and created 11 chances in 18 Premier League matches for the Red Devils this past season.

The 28-year-old had a pass accuracy of 83% and a shot accuracy of 50%, and won 48 headers, 17 dribbles and 18 tackles.
