United supporters warned over Moscow behaviour

27 September, 2017, 00:45 | Author: Rachael Silva

Fellaini has been ruled out of the Champions League clash with CSKA Moscow on Wednesday after suffering an ankle injury following Long's challenge in the first half of United's 1-0 win at St Mary's on Saturday.

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been ruled out for the game against CSKA Moscow on Wednesday after not travelling with the squad to Russian Federation.

"I played against CSKA with Real Madrid, with Inter, with Chelsea and now with Manchester United, so it's something normal in my Champions League career", he explained.

Jose Mourinho has already lost midfielder Paul Pogba to a hamstring injury, and now his replacement, Fellaini, has also checked his name into the club's injury list. "We are going to have a team with quality, with balance and to try to win the match which is our objective".

"He understands me and, to be honest, I understand him", Mourinho said last month.

"We have to keep looking for our chances and soon as our supporters are feeling that we are close to achieving a great performance and a great result, then I am sure that we can succeed a lot".

"Fellaini was lucky, it could have been a much worse situation", said Mourinho.


Two sides that enjoyed important opening round victories - CSKA Moscow and Manchester United will face each other this Wednesday, on a typically cold night in the Russian capital.

This comes after both Premier League clubs asked their fans to avoid walking by themselves in the Moscow streets, while Spartak, down their end, have urged their fans to not use pyrotechnics during the game.

However, a Matic-Carrick pivot isn't the most mobile of midfields and they will need support in containing CSKA's counter-attacks.

CSKA reached this stage of the competition by finishing second in the Russian Premier League last season and successfully navigating qualifying rounds against AEK Athens and Young Boys.

United boss Jose Mourinho said Fellaini's injury "could have been much worse" but expects the Belgium global to be back in action soon.

"For your safety and security you are advised not to wear Manchester United colours when in Moscow, or attract attention to your presence in the city".
