Ex-Man Utd Star Marouane Fellaini Hospitalized In China For Coronavirus

Former Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has tested positive for coronavirus.

Ex-Everton star Fellaini has become the first player in the Chinese Super League to contract the deadly bug.

Fellaini is currently plying his trade for Shandong Luneng in the Chinese Super League and was confirmed as having tested positive by a local health department in Jinan after taking a train to the Chinese province on Friday.

The 31-year-old spent 11 years in the Premier League with United before leaving for Shandong in a £10.4million deal last year.

After signing an eye-watering £250,000-a-week deal he scored 13 goals in his debut campaign in China.
