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

“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, who plays for Shandong Luneng in China.

Fellaini, 32, helped Belgium to a bronze medal at the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia.
