Felli Played Through Pain

Jagielka reveals Fellaini played through the pain against Man City

Felli Played Through Pain
Marouane Fellaini

Phil Jagielka has revealed that Marouane Fellaini played through the pain against Manchester City last weekend.

The Belgian was nursing an ankle knock but still managed to play the full 90 minutes, even leading the injury time counter attack which lead to Nikica Jelavic's emotional late goal.

Jagielka revealed: “He had a painful ankle problem before the City game and he could have milked it and missed the game before disappearing off on international week. But he was desperate to play.

“He strapped himself up and put in a great performance. You cannot question his commitment.”

Fellaini did pick up his tenth yellow card of the season during the game, earning himself a two match ban.

But Jagielka pointed out the influential midfielder has been the victim of opponents' physical approach all season - an approach which has taken time to get used to.

“Felli has taken all the beatings for us throughout the season and he will feel sometimes like the world is against him," continued Jagielka. "Sometimes it has been.

“You can forget he is not that old. He hasn’t grown up in the Premier League for all his career and hasn’t been at this level as long as others."
