Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has admitted that he was sad to see David Moyes lose his job after just 10 months in charge.
Fellaini joined Moyes in moving from Everton to Manchester United last summer but has failed to be as influential as he was at Goodison Park.
The Belgium international was signed for a fee of £27.5million in September but injuries have taken their toll and restricted him to just 15 league appearances.
Moyes was the man to bring the 26-year-old to England from Standard Liege in 2008 and Fellaini admits it will be strange without him, but insists he must work hard now to impress the interim boss Ryan Giggs.
Fellaini said: “It was a hard week because I was close with the manager.
“I was sad, but that’s football. Results are the most important thing in football so the club decided to make the choice.”
Giggs opted to leave Fellaini out of the squad for his first game in charge last weekend but he made it clear the midfielder will have a part to play before the season comes to an end.
Giggs is keen to try and put his stamp on the team before the end of the season as he bids to fight off competition from Louis van Gaal for the Old Trafford hot seat.
