When Marouane Fellaini started warming up during Manchester United’s 1-0 win over Tottenham Hotspur, sections of the fanbase started booing.
When he was then substituted on, more boos were heard, while other fans clapped in an attempt to overcompensate for the reaction of others.
Fellaini has never been popular but after giving away a penalty in the last minute against Everton last weekend, which saw us drop a vital two points, he is even more disliked.
However, Jose Mourinho praised the fans after the game, saying we were entitled to show our displeasure if we want, but that Fellaini was an important player for him.
I want to dedicate this victory to Fellaini because he deserves it. In the last match, it was him that was involved in the loss of two points, and that’s why I want to make it clear he is an important player for me.
The fans can do what they want and they have been phenomenal with us. I just have to thank them for everything they are giving us, especially in the period where we are not giving them too much so I am really happy with them.
