EPL: Your chance, big Fella
Manchester United's Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini (L) and Bayer Leverkusen's German midfielder Emre Can jump for the ball during the UEFA Champions League Group A football match football match.


Marouane Fellaini, like so many others before him, now knows how difficult it is to play for Manchester United.

Every United fan wants to have a say on whether a player is good enough to play for the Red Devils.

So far, the consensus is that the Belgian, who turned 26 last Friday, has not lived up to his £27.5 million ($55.7m) price tag.

His manager David Moyes has also come out to say that his big summer signing has been poor.

Let's be fair, though. Fellaini played a very different role when he made his name under Moyes at Everton.

At Goodison Park, he operated in a free role; he didn't have to drop deep and tackle, he was simply told to get into attacking areas and attack the ball, which he did very effectively.

There's a lot more he has to do when playing for United, and that's why Fellaini is struggling.

He's still learning how to play for the team - and he hasn't had too much time and matches to learn quickly enough.
