Manchester United's Marouane Fellaini to miss Belgium friendlies due to injury

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has withdrawn from the Belgium squad through injury.

Louis van Gaal confirmed the 27-year-old missed Saturday's 2-0 win against West Brom with an unspecified injury sustained in training on Friday.

That issue has subsequently forced Fellaini out of Belgium's squad for the upcoming friendlies against Italy and Spain, it was confirmed on Sunday evening.

Red Devils manager Marc Wilmots posted on Twitter: ".@Fellaini and @J_Lukaku94 are out for #belita & #belspa. Speedy recovery!"

Oostende left-back Jordan Lukaku - younger brother of Everton striker Romelu - and Fellaini have been replaced by Gent midfielder Sven Kums and Everton forward Kevin Mirallas.
