Marouane Fellaini was pictured training back at Carrington in preparation for Manchester United’s game with Galatasaray on Saturday.
The Belgian missed out on the side’s tour of China due to being on a mandatory three week break after reaching the last 16 of Euro 2016 earlier this summer.
Man United travel to Gothenburg tomorrow ahead of their pre-season friendly with Galatasaray, where Fellaini will be hoping to impress new boss Jose Mourinho.
Over the course of last season, Fellaini became the most divisive figure at Old Trafford. A large section of supporters bemoan the fact that, with two weeks to go until the Premier League starts again, the 28-year-old is still a United players.
A much smaller section of supporters – of which I am one – aren’t so harsh: they see the big Belgian as a useful, alternative type of player who can break down the opposition with his idiosyncratic, rambunctious style, as well as act as a useful resource off the bench. Where he lacks in technical ability, he makes up for it with aggression and power on the ball.
The Belgian will hope that Mourinho, who is looking to trim his squad ahead of the season, takes up the opinion of the latter section in the next month or so.
