Manchester United could have found a solution to their defensive midfield problems, thanks to former manager David Moyes, who was sacked last year. Moyes chose to play Fellaini as a defensive midfielder for the Red Devils and it totally backfired on him.
Eventually, Fellaini lost confidence and was benched for the rest of the campaign. Despite that he has played quite a different role under manager Louis van Gaal, who has helped him regain some of his best form and the Belgian international has scored 7 goals as well.
However, Fellaini is still banging on about being Manchester United’s anchor man, which is quite surprising. Fellaini told Goal, “Yes I see myself as a defensive midfielder, I feel comfortable playing there and if the manager decides he wants to play me there, I will.”
Further talking about the upcoming campaign and his side’s ambitions he added, “Of course we can catch Chelsea.”
“We have the quality, I think we will sign some new players, so why not? We have to.”
