Manchester United and Belgium midfielder Marouane Fellaini isn't much of a fan favourite, having lost a bit of his shine since leaving Everton. Yet this latest experiment could possibly convince some of his critics to re-evaluate their perception of the player.

​ YouTuber Rich Leigh took charge of this one, as he was curious to find out how he would fare if he fielded a team full of Fellainis in FIFA 17. He did just that, simming a season with a team of afro-topped players.

First up came Leicester City in the Community shield, and he managed to pull off a win to grab the silverware.  Up next was a match against Southampton in which the Fellainis lost 2-1. Well at least they got on the score-sheet.


Things got no better, as they lost against Hull City and Manchester City, but they were able to nick a win over Arouca in the Euro league.

A return to domestic action saw them suffer a 3-1 defeat against Watford, yet Chelsea would shockingly lose to them on penalties. 


Stromsgodset also routed them 4-1 in more European action. While Stoke City and Liverpool piled on more pain. After a few more games, the afro side managed a draw in the return leg against Stromsgodset. 

They also recorded an impressive 2-2 draw against Arsenal, as well as draws against West Ham and Spurs, however, they were met with several more losses that saw them finish at the bottom of the league table.


Somewhat unsurprisingly, the manager got sacked. But hey, at least they won a trophy, which is more than we can say for the team filled with ​Cristiano Ronaldos or Lionel Messis.

Check the video out below. There's a second part in there in which the Fellanis do much better and actually finish in eighth place.
