Fellaini left Everton at the end of the summer 2013 transfer window, when David Moyes signed him for United from his former club. Now, with Fellaini set for a starting role for United when they visit Everton on Sunday, Van Gaal says that Evertonians should give him a warm welcome.
He said, “I hope he’ll get a reception like Juan Mata did at Chelsea. I liked that very much.”
Fellaini has found the kind of form at United which made Evertonians so fond of him when he was with the Blues, and is looking like the kind of player he was bought to be by David Moyes.
