The Belgium international has admitted that when David Moyes left the Red Devils last season he shed a tear or two.
Ironically though, it is under Louis van Gaal that Fellaini now looks to be flourishing.
Recalling his feelings around the time Moyes left Old Trafford, he explained to So Foot that,
“There were tears. This is normal. I am a human being. I worked with him for six years.”
“When he left, I was sad, we had heard things on the radio and TV (about Moyes leaving). It was after a defeat to Everton.
“I did not know if it was true or not. Then I arrived the next day at the (training ground) canteen, and I saw him in his suit, rather than his tracksuit. I told myself: ‘This is the end.'”
Fellaini goes on to say,
“He was not a second father, but almost. He helped me a lot.”
The former Everton man has come back into the good books at the Old Trafford club in recent times and is now a crucial part of United’s team.
With his side in a great position to claim a place in the Champions League this season, Fellaini and his team-mates are now on course for a great season.
One can be sure Fellaini’s tough memories from last season are now eased slightly by how positive this campaign has been for him.
