Marouane Fellaini has been made into the top quality player he is now by Everton FC. When he arrived at Everton, he looked like a clueless oaf who appeared well out of his depth and I remember me and 40,000 other spectators at Everton wondering why on Earth Everton had spent £15 million on this afro topped lost midfielder. However, Everton then transformed him into a much better midfielder, a much better player. He has become one of the best midfielders in the league in my opinion and he has Everton to thank for this.
So how does the Belgian repay them? He expresses his desire to leave. Nice one Marouane. It just sums up the typical modern day footballer for me and us Arsenal fans can relate a lot to this because it's just like what players like Hleb, Nasri and Van Persie have done to us in recent years. Arsenal make the player, have faith in him, give him first team football, a sparkling contract and the fans show him such huge, overwhelming support and the player turns his back on each and every one of them as soon as he sees pound signs and has visions of trophies.
What Fellaini should do is honour at least most of the five year contract he signed earlier this year and show some loyalty to the club and the supporters that have supported him throughout his Everton career so far.
Modern day footballers need to stop living inside their own little personal bubbles and show some unselfishness for a change. He owes Everton and the Everton fans, he certainly shouldn't be walking out on them just because the prospect of joining a better team may be coming along.
It's not even like Man City or Man Utd or Real Madrid or any other other top team has put in an offer for him, he just seems to have randomly said he wants to leave Everton as soon as possible. Just over a week after the transfer window has shut, just after Everton have got off to a good start, just after the season has started- what a stupid time to say these things. My suspicion is that the likes of Eden Hazrad and Vincent Kompany have been tapping up in the Belgium squad this week.
