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. 

As his team were sliding to a 1-0 defeat at home to Newcastle United on Saturday, the midfielder was pictured staring at his phone rather than the game.


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.
