Fellaini struggling to settle at Man Utd
Tuesday 17 September 2013
New Manchester United signing Marouane Fellaini has admitted that he is struggling to adapt to life with the champions, and that he has found it difficult to make the step up in training, reports the Daily Star.
The Belgian left Everton for Old Trafford on transfer deadline day for a fee of £27.5m, becoming Man Utd’s only significant summer signing. He made his debut for the club as a substitute in Saturday’s 2-0 Premier League win over Crystal Palace, and was given a positive reception from the supporters.
However, despite insisting that he is delighted to be at Man Utd, he has struggled to make the adjustment after five years at Goodison Park. He said: "I have a problem with the intensity of the training because I am playing with big players. It is quicker than at Everton but I am happy. I like the game and I like to play."
Fellaini is in line to make his Champions League group stage debut on Tuesday evening against Bayer Leverkusen, and is pushing for his first start for Man Utd. He is also likely to be involved in the Manchester derby at the Etihad Stadium on Sunday.
