Giggs: Fellaini succeeded by ignoring Man Utd boo-boys

Manchester United legend Ryan Giggs has hailed the impact of Marouane Fellaini.

Ex-United coach Giggs, who worked with Fellaini while assistant to Louis van Gaal, heaped great praise on Fellaini yesterday.

"Marouane Fellaini has really proved his importance, stepping in for Paul Pogba," Giggs told Sky Sports.

"I've worked with him and he's a great lad to train because he does exactly what you want.

“He hasn't let the fans bother him because he's always had the support of the players and the coaches.

"He is effective, knows his strengths and limitations, and he's somebody who Jose has put a lot of faith in and he has repaid that with some important goals."
