“What an incredible journey it’s been”, said Fellaini in a social media post.

Fellaini said he was “proud” to have represented the clubs he had and that it was “an honour to have played for the Belgian national team at the Olympics of 2008, Euro 2016 and the World Cups of 2014 and 2018”.

He made 141 Premier League appearances for Everton, scoring 25 goals and registering 14 assists for them.
