Marouane Fellaini, Manchester United’s much-maligned Belgian midfielder sent a clear message to the club’s fanbase on how seriously he and his teammates are taking the FA Cup after scoring a decisive second-half goal in United’s 1-2 quarter final replay away to West Ham United.
Speaking to BBC Sport, Fellaini had this to say on the competition’s importance: “We will do everything to win the FA Cup. It’s an important trophy in England, so we will do everything to win.”
When asked by presenter Dan Walker on United’s two second-half strikes, the Belgian was happy to talk up Marcus Rashford’s scintillating second-half strike whilst insisting his kneed-finish was instinctive: “It’s a brilliant goal, I think he (Rashford) did very well. (My goal) is not luck and it wasn’t planned but it was an important goal, and it’s good for the confidence. We are in the semi-final now, so we have to focus on the next game.”
