Marouane Fellaini: At the end of the month I will be back


Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini says he was never asked to leave by new boss Louis van Gaal.

The Belgium international was heavily linked with a move away from Old Trafford during the summer with Napoli showing interest but revealed he was never on the market.

"I talked to Van Gaal and he has never said that I had to leave," Fellaini told Sport Wereld.

"He said I had a lot of competition, but that I will get the chance to prove myself

"I have known difficult moments like last season, but you become a stronger player afterwards.

"I have confidence in myself and in my game again."

The 26-year-old is currently sidelined with an injury but is expected to be back after the international break.

"I played a good World Cup and also during the preparation, I was good," added Fellaini.

"It is unfortunate that this injury has thrown spanner in the works, but at the end of the month I will be back."
