Man Utd Star Hits Out At Club
Manchester United Star Hits Out At Club
A Manchester United player, who Jose Mourinho does not want to see leave in the next transfer window, has hit out at the Red Devils for how the club have handled his contract situation.
Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini has played an important role at the club since Mourinho’s arrival in 2016, but is said to be nearing an exit from the club.
The former Everton star, whose contract is expiring by the end of the campaign, has now criticised United for not offering him a new deal last season, suggesting he is in a strong position now to dictate terms.
"The entire staff is doing everything so I can stay," he told Sport Voetbal Magazine.
"The club did not renew my contract last year. Now I am in a strong position, especially since Mourinho has stated that he wants to keep me.
"Last year I went to the coach and I said that I wanted a new contract. I then had a second meeting, but I will not ask it 10 times.
"Afterwards I became important for the team... and a good player costs at least 50m euros. The club knows that they went wrong there."
The 30-year-old has played just 22 times for United this season due to reoccurring injury struggles, and has scored five goals, including a late winner over Arsenal this weekend in his side’s 2-1 win in the Premier League.
