Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini insists he is happy with his current role at the club under manager Jose Mourinho.

The former Chelsea coach has come under pressure in recent weeks as the Red Devils struggle in the Premier League.

United are 11 points off the pace going into this weekend’s fixtures but Fellaini insists Mourinho is the right man for the job.

The former Everton star will come up against his old club this weekend and admits his role at United under Mourinho is something he enjoys playing.

He told Soccer AM: “He’s asked me to play my game. He knows what I can do. Straight away, he said to me ‘I know you’re quality, I know what you can do.’

During the Euros, he called me and asked if I wanted to move or continue so it definitely gave me a boost. “In the middle of midfield is, in my opinion, my best position.

I can play as a No 6 or a No 8 but in the middle is my position. It is hard to adapt to moving around, but I’m used to it. This season, I just play in the midfield defensively and I’m happy like that.”

Fellaini is expected to line up against the Toffees and the Red Devils are 2.15 favourites to win. The draw is 3.40 while Everton can be backed at odds of 3.60.
