Former Everton and Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini was discharged from a Chinese hospital on Tuesday after testing positive for COVID-19 late last month.

The 32-year-old Shandong Luneng midfielder, the only player known to have contracted the pandemic in the Chinese Super League (CSL), will now spend 14 days in quarantine for further observation.

The former Premier League star joined Shandong from Manchester United in February last year for £10.4million. Fellaini, 32, helped Belgium to a bronze medal at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.

“The time has come for me to thank from the bottom of my heart, the medical staff of the hospital, their nursing staff as well as my Club and its medical staff for taking such good care of me with so much kindness and for ensuring my comfort whilst there,” said Fellaini.

While in hospital in the city of Jinan, Fellaini posted videos of himself on Instagram exercising in his room.
