It has been reported that Manchester United Under-21 manager Warren Joyce was impressed with the attitude shown by midfielder Marouane Fellaini earlier this week.
The Belgium international has struggled for regular minutes on the pitch for United this season and in order to keep his match fitness levels up, the Belgian participated in the U21 clash against Liverpool on Monday night.
Fellaini put in a professional performance with a goal and two assists and manager Warren Joyce has been left very impressed with the midfielder’s attitude despite the international footballer having to play with the kids.
Joyce said: “I thought his attitude was first class. I obviously know him from being around the building and having discussions with him but I met him actually in Belgium a long time ago when he was at Standard Liege and I was with Royal Antwerp. So I’ve known him a long time really and watched his progress.
“When we were out there, we played Standard Liege in the semi-final of the Belgian Cup when Darron Gibson, Fraizer Campbell, Jonny Evans and Ryan Shawcross were on loan at Antwerp. So I’ve followed his path even before he came to Manchester United and before he came to England (with Everton).
“I’ve watched his progress from afar from that time because he was only a 17-year-old boy and you were comparing him to some boys here and I thought he was an absolute cert to do well in England.
“I have always thought he was a good professional and he demonstrated that on Monday night.”
