Substitute Marouane Fellaini was booed by Manchester United fans as he warmed up before coming on for the last few moments of their 1-0 win against Spurs at Old Trafford on Sunday – and these are the best jokes.
After clumsily conceding a penalty shortly after entering the fray late on in a clash with Everton last week as his side sought to protect another one-goal lead, the supporters were wary of a repeat occurrence.
Although the midfielder did not jeopardise United’s winning position this time, here are the best of the jokes as Marouane Fellaini is booed by Man Utd fans at Old Trafford:
@ManUtd don't sub fellaini on

Mourinho should bring on Fellaini to help protect the lead.

Sky apologising because we might have heard a few swear words. Just wait until Fellaini comes on and there's 72,000 calling him a wanker.

Wouldn't blame Fellaini if he came on and gave away a penalty on purpose just to piss off those fans who booed him.

Gary Neville says 'that's poor' as Fellaini starts warming up to a chorus of boos. And he's right to be fair, Fellaini really is poor

Mourinho brings on Fellaini in the last minute. So he does have a sense of humour.

Fellaini time. He's got 30 seconds to save this for Spurs. Herrera off.

Fellaini surely can't do anything wrong in 30 seconds can he?
