Belgium head coach Marc Wilmots has reportedly urged midfielder Marouane Fellaini to leave Manchester United at the first opportunity, according to Belgian publication Le Soir.
Last month Wilmots dropped a few not so subtle hints that he wanted to see Eden Hazard swap the pressures of Chelsea for a move to Real Madrid or PSG where he would enjoy a less hectic schedule alongside a team full of genuine megastars.
And he’s nows given Fellaini the same advice by urging him to leave Old Trafford in search of more regular game time so that he can arrive at Euro 2016 in good form.
Felllaini has started just one game for United all season, and has been reduced to the role of impact sub, which invariably sees him thrown up front in the hope that his forehead will meet some crosses.
The report in Le Soir has quoted Wilmots as saying: “Fellaini could play to support the attack, as the No.6. He has very good technique, very good ability to track back and recover. Maybe he will try to find a new challenge in January, if it is possible.”
