Zlatan Ibrahimovic scored the winning goal for the Red Devils as they eased past Leicester City to lift the Community Shield. However, Belgian midfielder Marouane Fellaini almost cost United the match as his error led to Jamie Vardy’s second half equalizer.
Jesse Lingard scored a brilliant solo goal to give Manchester United the lead going into half-time, but all his good work was undone by a Marouane Fellaini back pass which gifted Leicester striker Jamie Vardy a goal. With news that Juventus midfielder Paul Pogba is set to undergo a medical for United soon, the mistake was sarcastically described as enough to keep the 23-year-old Frenchman out of the first team.
Pogba will have to compete with Fellaini for a starting spot at MUFC. Mission impossible with assists like this. pic.twitter.com/ZEVSHRPfNZ

Can’t see that Pogba will make the team ahead of Fellaini!

The Belgian midfielder is already treading on thin ice with the Manchester United fans, and his latest display has not helped in winning back their affections.
With Pogba signing, I will be furious if Fellaini ever plays for United again

100 – Man United have just offered Juventus £100 million to take Marouane Fellaini off their hands. Bargain.

There’s no point selling Fellaini, just donate him to any club willing to take him.
