Manchester United may have come out of their UEFA Super Cup final against Real Madrid with disappointment, but their midfielder Marouane Fellaini had something to smile about.

The midfielder was hit on the face awkwardly during the contest which his team lost to the game to Real Madrid 2-1, with the Brazilian Casemiro and Spanish player Isco scoring for the latter.

For Manchester United, it was the new signing in Romelu Lukaku scoring the only goal for his side, but also missing an opportunity which many believe should have been converted.

However, it was a funny photograph of Fellaini which emerged after the match, taken by Boris Grdanoski of the Associated Press which provided the fans as well as the footballer himself a moment to laugh.

The Belgian football player took to Twitter to laugh at the photo, and even thanked those who sent him this.

Several football fans went the extra mile to convert this photo into hilarious memes.

Fellaini needed a bandage during the game when he banged his head with Real Madrid’s Sergio Ramos, and even that photograph provided fans a chance to have some fun.
