EPL: Ian Wright reveals player that’ll turn things around at Man United this season

Former England star, Ian Wright has revealed one player that could help Manchester boss, Jose Mourinho turn things around at the Old Trafford this season.
Wright said that Marouane Fellaini was capable of starring for the Red Devils to victories.

The Belgium international was signed by former United manager, David Moyes and moved to Old Trafford on deadline day in 2013 for £27.5million.

He signed a new two-year contract at the end of last season as United ended the campaign in second place.

But Wright believes Fellaini could turn fortunes around at Manchester United, and Mourinho knows that too.

“He (Fellaini) gets a hard time simply because of the money he came in for at the time,” Wright said on Sky Sports’ The Debate.

“It was a lot of money then and it’s to do with the fact that he was signed during David Moyes’ tenure.

“It wasn’t the signing the fans wanted so he came into a very negative atmosphere.

“That’s why they feel how they do about him but once they get past that, and I think Mourinho is doing his best to try and help him with that, and they see the performances he puts in, especially against Burnley.

“He then just needs to put those kind of performances in against the teams in the top six and then people will start to realise.

“He was the butt of everyone’s jokes but we saw Louis van Gaal use him and we’ve seen Mourinho use him.

“It says to me it’s because they know he offers something and that’s why he gave him a new deal,” he added.
