Fellaini isn't Maradona.



Jose Mourinho has praised Marouane Fellaini after the Belgian's late goal against Young Boys in the Champions League helped Manchester United seal a spot in the knock-out stages of Europe's elite competition.

Fellaini is finally receiving the recognition and credit he deserves as 'he did many times what strikers couldn’t do which is score goals in important moments'.

“I think now he’s getting [the credit], I think until I came probably no but I think now everyone gives him what he deserves. Everybody knows Marouane is not Maradona but everyone knows what Marouane is and what he can give." the United boss said in his press conference ahead of their Premier League tie against Southampton.

"In this moment, especially this season and also last season he did many times what strikers couldn’t do which is score goals in important moments.

"I know him very well and I know the positions he can play, the jobs he can do.

"This season you saw him as a third central defender against Burnley and you saw him as a striker and as a number eight, which is basically the position where Marouane has more balance.

"He’s very important in both boxes, in the first third and in the last third. Now people know what Marouane is about and he also feels that good feeling.”
