Fellaini: What Mourinho Told Me Before Arsenal Match Winner



The Belgian midfielder scored the victor against Arsenal on Sunday and Jose Mourinho later indicated that there is a good chance he will sign a new deal with Manchester United.

ARSENE WENGER'S final trip to Old Trafford as Arsenal boss ended in disappointment as substitute Marouane Fellaini's late header won it for Manchester United. I would like to thank Manchester United for the gesture they made. I have worked at a top level for 35 years without any interruption and I think I am the only one who has done that.

"We are nearly there but I can't celebrate because nearly is not enough", Mourinho is quoted by the BBC. "I have chose to take a little distance for four or five weeks before I make a decision", Wenger said. "I would be surprised that I meet him next year". "Once you are not a danger any more, people love you", he added with a grin.

The final takes place in the Stade de Lyon on May 16, just three days after Arsenal travel to Huddersfield for their final league match of the season. "My successor will watch this game today and hopefully he will come to a positive conclusions for the players", Wenger said. "So I would be surprised if I meet him next year". Personally, when I look at that current United squad they should be doing better than they are.

Fellaini has only started four Premier League games this term, but the victor against Arsenal was his fourth league goal of the season and Mourinho is confident the 30-year-old midfielder can be convinced to commit his future to the Old Trafford club.

"It was a positive performance and overall reflects our season, we had chances and especially on counter-attacks", Wenger said.

"We are trying to organise our team and are thinking about improvements".

Marouane Fellaini wants a two-year deal worth more than £100,000-a-week to stay at Manchester United, reports say.
