Marouane Fellaini Scores On China Debut

Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini started his career in China on a scoring note after he scored the winning goal on his debut.

Belgian international Fellaini scored the only goal of the game to give his Shandong Luneng side’s 1-0 win over Beijing Renhe in a Chinese Super League clash.

It was his first game for Shandong Luneng since he joined the club earlier this year from three-time European champions Manchester United.

Shandong Luneng paid £10m to sign the former Everton player from Manchester United where he was surplus to requirements.

He was one of the new faces in the off-season in China.

Other major arrivals include compatriot Moussa Dembele who signed for Guangzhou R&F from Tottenham Hotspur and Marek Hamsik.

Slovakian international Hamsik joined Dalian Yifang from Italian Serie A giants Napoli.

Marouane Fellaini was a regular fixture in the Manchester United team under Jose Mourinho before the Portuguese tactician was axed as manager in December.

His status changed under interim manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer as he struggled to get minutes under the Norwegian tactician.

Marouane Fellaini made just one substitute appearance under Solskjaer and that was in the FA Cup third round clash with English Championship club Reading which Manchester United won 2-0 courtesy goals from Juan Manuel Mata and Romelu Lukaku either side of the halftime interval.
