KARIER gelandang Manchester United Marouane Fellaini diduga berubah menjadi lebih buruk setelah dia ditarik keluar oleh Jose Mourinho dan hanya masuk lapangan selama tujuh menit saat melawan Tottenham Hotspur.

Pemain tengah Belgia itu masuk lapangan untuk mengganti Jesse Lingard pada menit 63 saat MU tertinggal 2-0. Namun dia nyaris tidak memberi dampak besar terhadap tim sebelum keluar lapangan digantikan Ander Herera pada menit 70.

Awalnya, muncul spekulasi bahwa Mourinho menariknya dari lapangan lantaran mengubah taktik, namun sang manajer kemudian mengonfirmasi bahwa penggantian pemain dilakukan setelah Fellaini mengalami masalah di lututnya.

Pelatih asal Portugis mengatakan kepada BT Sport: "Dia ditarik karena ada masalah di lututnya. Ini tidak beruntung baginya dan tidak beruntung buat saya. Dia datang dengan antusias, tapi dia mengalami cedera dalam ligamennya."

Hal itu kemudian ditunjukkan oleh hasil pengamatan kamera bahwa Fellaini tampil lebih buruk saat berebut bola dan tidak berbahaya dengan gelandang Tottenham Christian Eriksen hanya 30 detik setelah masuk lapangan.

Dia terlihat terpincang-pincang lantaran masalah lutut dan ternyata tidak mampu berbuat banyak akibat cedera yang belum pulih maksimal tersebut.

Eriksen sebelumnya mencetak gol untuk Tottenham setelah hanya 11 detik sebelum gol bunuh diri Phil Jones menggandakan keunggulan tim tuan rumah.

Kontrak baru Alexis Sanchez dengan MU gagal mengantarkan klub barunya di Liga Premier Inggris (EPL) saat MU menyerah pada kekalahan keempat musim ini dan selisih 15 poin dari pemimpin klasemen Manchester City seperti dilansir MailOnline.

MAROUANE FELLAINI´S Manchester United career took another turn for the worse after he was brought on by Jose Mourinho only to be hauled off again just seven minutes later against Tottenham.

The Belgian midfielder was exchanged for Jesse Lingard after 63 minutes and with Manchester United trailing 2-0. But he barely had time to make an impact before leaving the pitch for Ander Herrera on 70 minutes.

Originally, it was speculated that Mourinho had taken him off in a tactical switch, but the manager later confirmed the change was enforced after Fellaini suffered a problem in his knee.

The Portuguese told BT Sport: ´He came off because he had something in his knee. It is unlucky for him and unlucky for me. He came on with enthusiasm, but he has an injury in his ligament.´

It was later pointed out by eagle-eye observers that Fellaini had come off worse in an innocuous clash with Tottenham midfielder Christian Eriksen just 30 seconds after coming on.

He was seen limping away from the challenge clutch his knee and soldiered on before ultimately failing to shake off the knock.

Eriksen had earlier scored for Tottenham after just 11 seconds before Phil Jones´ own goal doubled the home side´s advantage.

New signing Alexis Sanchez failed to shine on his Premier League bow for his new club as Manchester United succumbed to a fourth defeat of the campaign and fell 15 points behind leaders City.
