Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has spoken out over the current unwanted situation at Old Trafford, including the player’s activities on social media.

The Belgian international, who speaks at length with reporters, said the club hierarchy are always eager to terminate manager’s contract once events aren’t turning out the way they wanted.

He said: “”They brought in Moyes, they didn’t give him time. They brought in Van Gaal, they gave him two years and we started to do some things, he won the cup, but after that they sacked the manager because they want to win quickly, I think. A manager like Van Gaal tactically is very strong and has a lot of experience and they sacked him,”

He claimed that the board were too quick to fire former manager José Mourinho who led the team to Europa League glory in his first year as United manager.

He said: “They brought in one of the best managers in the world in Jose Mourinho, he wanted to build a team and they sacked him. It’s not easy to build a team in that time, you need more than two years.

“For me, yes [United were too hasty in sacking Mourinho] because a manager like that comes and he needs a lot of players to implement his own philosophy. He wanted to build his team and after two years, or two years and a half, they decided to sack him because the results were not there,”

He equally criticized some player’s decision to go straight to social media after matches rather than analyze their performance and see where they need to develop ahead of next fixture.

“You see some players go straight into the dressing room after games and go straight onto social media. It’s wrong.” he concluded.
