Picture: Man Utd midfielder caught smoking cigar

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini sparked controversy on holiday in Ibiza when he was pictured smoking a cigar.

The Belgium intentional is currently on a break after Belgium were dumped out of the Euro 2016 tournament following a 3-1 defeat against Wales in the quarter-finals.

Fellaini was pictured smoking alongside his twin brother Mansour and other friends.

United boss Jose Mourinho has yet to comment on the incident and it remains to be seen if the midfielder will face punishment from his club.

The Portuguese manager famously criticised Arsenal midfielder Jack Wilshere when he was caught smoking, so all eyes will be on Mourinho to see how he responds now that one of his players have been caught in the act.

Mourinho stated that Wilshere had acted irresponsibly and could encourage young kids to start smoking as a result of his actions.

“I am not a specialist obviously, but I don’t think if a football player smokes one cigar or cigarette with friends in the summer when he is not training – I don’t think it affects his performance,” Mourinho was quoted as saying by the Sun.

“What gets affected is that a kid at home says ‘if a top football player can smoke, then I can smoke’ and it is not a problem.”

Fellaini made just 12 Premier League starts last season and Mourinho has yet to reveal his plans for the midfielder next season.
