Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini is looking forward to a better season this time around as he looks to improve upon last year’s showing at Old Trafford.
“The manager said to me I would have to fight if I wanted to play,” he said. “I did fight and trained hard and that was it. When I got my chance I tried to show myself and tried to do my best.
“Last season was a difficult season for me. The World Cup helped me a lot. The manager of the national team and the players helped me and it was a great experience for everybody.”
Despite missing the initial stages of this season through injury, Fellaini has been impressive in recent displays for United and has played the full 90 minutes in his club’s last three outings.
And the Belgium international says he is happy with his progress, and believes he will only improve as he reaches full fitness.
“When you are playing you are always happy,” he said. “So I am happy at the moment. I have worked hard and will work hard to play every game.
“I am fit now and that is why I am better. When I am super fit I will be better I am sure.”
