Marouane Fellaini: Plans to honour his long-term contract at Everton

Fellaini has been linked with a move away from Goodison Park after emerging as one of the strongest players in the Premier League over the past couple of seasons.

He remains under contract at Everton for another three-and-a-half years and insists he is happy to stay for as long as the club want him.

"I want to go higher in football but I have a contract with Everton until 2016 and, if they want me to, I will see it out to the end," said the Belgian.

Fellaini is set to return to the Everton side against Newcastle United on Wednesday night after serving a three-match ban for headbutting Ryan Shawcross of Stoke City.

And manager David Moyes has urged his player to be more like Lionel Messi and not become so agitated if an opponent tries to unsettles him.

"The best person you have to look at is Lionel Messi. Every person targets him, they'll do everything," Moyes said.

"But all he ever does is get up and get on with it. That's the sign of a top player. It says to people, 'Whatever you do, it doesn't affect me'.

"I tell Felli that you just have to get on with it. If I was playing against Felli, I'd try and wind him up."

Fellaini admits he was wrong to react the way he did in the match against Stoke, saying: "My headbutt on Ryan Shawcross was frustration, as he had spent the entire game pulling and pushing me.

"But I shouldn't have butted him. I exploded and I am sorry for doing so."

ell that really inspires me with confidence. No point in training, deciding on a coherent formation, or playing players in their best positions, let's just hope we get lucky.

alcao really needs to shine now. Apparently according to the stats, he scores more when played up front alone. I wonder if Van Gaal will actually apply a formation to get the best out of him though.
