SKOPJE, Macedonia (AP) — The scene was the Super Cup against Real Madrid, and it wasn't a pretty picture for Marouane Fellaini.
Still, the Manchester United star had something to laugh about following the 2-1 loss in Macedonia. An Associated Press photograph of Fellaini's distorted face beside the ball attracted plenty of attention in mainstream and social media.
