Marouane Fellaini yesterday drew José Mourinho’s captain’s straw in what is already being described as the latest depressing draw for Man Utd fans.
With a number of senior players out injured for the trip to Sunderland, Mourinho drew the conclusion that straws should be drawn to decide the captaincy.
Terrace boo-boy Fellaini drew the longest straw in a development that’s already drawing comparisons with a number of recent home draws in terms of supporter frustration.
Although United ran out 3-0 winners to extend their unbeaten run to 21 matches, United fans drew the line at the drawn-out shenanigans and demanded Mourinho draw them to a close.
Speaking exclusively to Football Burp, Mourinho disagreed with supporters and insisted that Fellaini’s performance was “top drawer”.
He said: “Does that count? I know it’s spelt a bit differently.
“This is a fun game though, albeit at my expense, and you won’t beat me because I’m quick on the draw.
“See? You may have drawn first blood but I’ve at the very least drawn level, and I can see you’re drawing a blank now.
“But yes, we do draw at home a lot.”
