Manchester United Manager, Louis van Gaal says Marouane Fellaini will play as a striker for Manchester United this season.

Van Gaal made this known while Speaking to reporters ahead of their Champions League play-off second leg clash with Club Brugge, Van Gaal said: “He can play as a no.9 and a no.10, and he can also play as a no.6 and no.8.

“This year he wiil play more as a no.9 and no.10 rather than 6 and 8 because there we have other players.”

Fellaini struggled in his first term at Old Trafford under David Moyes but bounced back to have a moderately successful 2014-15 season.


“In the past I have played no.9 and no.10. I have to help the team. I can play there,” he insisted.

“It’s not important where I play, the most important thing is to win the game. Of course it’s different but I enjoy all the positions I can play in.”

“Everyone knows my first season was difficult, but now it’s in the past. I look forward,” he added.

“Last season I did quite well and I want to continue. I know my team-mates, the manager and his philosophy. I am looking to do well and score goals.”

“It was our aim to participate in the Champions League. We are still not there yet, it’s very important,” he added.

“We have to play the game, at the end you have to have scored one goal more than the opponent. They have beaten Greek opponents [Panathinaikos] 3-0, they are capable of doing that with the suppoot of their fans.”
