Marouane Fellaini hopeful of Champions League qualification with Everton
Belgian targets top-four finish with Toffees
Tuesday 11 December 2012
Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is keen for Everton to maintain their place in the top four in order to qualify for the Champions League.
The Belgium international was named Barclays Premier League player of the month for November after scoring four goals and being involved in creating two more.
He has been used in a more advanced midfield role by manager David Moyes this season and the 25-year-old, who has regularly been linked with a number of clubs, is enjoying himself.
"At the moment I am playing well. I am happy - but the most important things are the team and the club," the eight-goal midfielder told evertonfc.com.
"I try to give my maximum in every game. The manager likes it when I play in attack, so at the moment, it's good for me and the club.
"I've been scoring the goals and I work hard on the pitch.
"This season we have played well. We thank the fans because we have great support.
"Everybody wants to play Champions League next season so we work hard for this and hopefully we can finish in the top four."
