Nobody Can Believe Marouane Fellaini is Manchester United’s Captain Today

Marouane Fellaini has been named as Manchester United‘s captain today – and just about nobody can really believe it.

The Belgian midfielder has always been something of a love/hate figure amongst the United support, ever since his move from Everton back in 2013 under then manager David Moyes.

His physical and combative style isn’t exactly synonymous with United’s free-flowing, fast and attacking brand of football that’s traditionally played at Old Trafford, but he seems to have struck a chord with Jose Mourinho.

The Special One has went out of his way to praise and protect Fellaini at various times this season, and has handed him the skipper’s armband for today’s Premier League clash with Sunderland.

With Wayne Rooney, Michael Carrick, Chris Smalling and David de Gea all missing, Fellaini is apparently the most senior and most deserving player – but the reaction on social media hasn’t been very kind:

Robson, Cantona, Keane and Rooney – and now big Marouane.

Is it really that bad? Is the decision really worthy of this reaction?
