Marouane Fellaini has struggled to impress since his £27.5m switch to Manchester United from Everton this summer, and it looks like the Belgium international was losing patience at being on the bench at Old Trafford

Perhaps he was a bit bored—or perhaps he was just trying to distract himself from the children seemingly playing with his hair behind him.
