Coronavirus: Man United Star Sends Message Of Hope To Stricken Fellaini


Manchester United attacker Marcus Rashford has sent a message of hope to former teammate Marouane Fellaini who has tested positive for the dreaded Coronavirus.

Marouane Fellaini was confirmed as the latest player to test positive for Coronavirus at the end of last week. The Belgian international didn’t show any symptoms of the virus-like coughing and fever before he tested positive to the viral disease on Friday.

Ex-Manchester United midfielder Fellaini announced that he has tested positive via his official Twitter account and he was thereafter encouraged by Marcus Rashford who sent a tweet to him to encourage him in his fight to beat the disease.

Marcus Rashford and Marouane Fellaini were teammates at Manchester United before the latter left the club at the start of last year.

Fellaini secured a transfer from Manchester United to Chinese Super League giants side Shandong Luneng for just £10m in January 2019. The former Everton player began the exodus of experienced players at Manchester United last year.

The exit of the Belgian international preceded the transfers of others like Ander Herrera, Romelu Lukaku and Chilean international Alexis Sanchez.

Spanish international left Manchester United for French giants Paris Saint Germain (PSG) on a free transfer after his contract with the Red Devils ended last summer.

For Lukaku, the Belgian international signed for Italian Serie A giants Inter Milan in a club-record deal. Manchester United received £74m for his transfer to Italy last summer, while his Inter Milan teammates Alexis Sanchez joined the Nerazzuri on loan till the end of this season.

Marouane Fellaini becomes the first player to test positive to the aforementioned viral disease in the Chinese Super League. The Chinese clubs had taken their players abroad following the outbreak of the pandemic but those players are returning to China with the country slowly getting the better of Coronavirus.
