Mourinho: Man Utd faithful have to love Fellaini

Manchester United manager Jose Mourinho claims that United fans will end up loving Marouane Fellaini if he continues to play like he's playing now.

The Portuguese heaped praise on the Belgium international, who attracted severe criticism from United fans last season, for his performance in the 3-1 win over Bournemouth.

Mourinho also had nice words for defenders Eric Bailly and Daley Blind.

He said: "Bailly and Daley played well, the midfield players had an unbelievable complement for each other.

"With Fellaini I always have the feeling that he was not loved by the general Red people.

"But if he plays like he's playing now, they have to love him because he's being so important for us."
