Manchester United Midfielder Marouane Fellaini Ruled Out For Two Months After Undergoing Knee Surgery

Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out for two months following knee surgery

Marouane Fellaini has undergone surgery in an attempt to resolve the knee ligament issues that have dogged him this season.

Jose Mourinho confirmed the news after Manchester United’s 2-0 win over Huddersfield and expects the Belgium midfielder to be out of action for two months.

Fellaini has already had two lay-offs of six and four weeks since first sustaining a medial ligament injury in his left knee on international duty against Bosnia in October.

He limped off against Tottenham in midweek with a lateral ligament problem in the same joint just seven minutes after coming on as a substitute.

Mourinho said: ‘He had surgery this morning. I don’t want to be very specific, I would prefer the doctor to give you some information officially.

‘It’s not the end of his season, not at all. It’s a small intervention in his external (lateral) meniscus and I want to believe that by the end of March he can be back.

‘And if he can be back by the end of March, I hope we have a big April and a big May still to play in more than one competition.’
