Marouane Fellaini: 'I am not an aggressive player'

Fellaini: 'I'm not an aggressive player'

Marouane Fellaini rejects suggestions that he is "an aggressive player", despite accumulating 42 yellow cards during his time in the Premier League.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has insisted that it is wrong to portray him as "an aggressive player" as he is simply doing his job.

The 30-year-old has built up a certain reputation due to his physical work in the middle of the field, reflected in the 42 yellow cards accumulated in his nine Premier League campaigns.

Fellaini claims that he has been wrongly labelled as a thug-type player, however, because he is only focused on winning the ball back for his side by any means possible.

"It think it's easy for them to portray me as an aggressive player, but I'm not," he told GQ Style. "I try to play my game, I try my best to recover the ball quickly - that's my job. I try to be better all the time, to give my best for the team, for the club. I always want to improve."

Fellaini returned to action with a 20-minute appearance against Liverpool at the weekend following a six-week layoff.
