Fellaini has scored 21 goals in his 57 appearances for the Chinese club and he is motivated to continue his career in Jinan.

"For me, Shandong is always in the top five. This year we have to fight for the title. Last year we won the [CFA] Cup, I think it is good for the team ... and all the players were happy,"

Fellaini said.

"This year we have to fight against Guangzhou Evergrande because most of time they are champions in China. ... We have to be ready and give everything."

The Belgian has been impressed by the CSL's facilities and fans.

"It's amazing and the facilities are top," Fellaini said. "For example, the massive stadium that could seat 60,000 people. Not every team in the world can have this kind of stadium."

Asked about his future at the CSL club, the 33-year-old responded:

"I am enjoying it until my body says stop. I am enjoying the life here,"

Fellaini said.

"Since the pandemic, it's not easy to go back to Europe. So to see family and friends is difficult. But I will enjoy every moment. [My] career is short and this year I will be 34. So, I try to enjoy every moment in football because life goes fast."
