Former Manchester United midfielder, Marouane Fellaini, on Friday announced his retirement from international football, ending a 12-year career with the Belgium national team.

The 31-year-old also represented Belgium at two FIFA World Cups, helping them finish third in Russia last year.

The 31-year-old scored 18 goals in 87 appearances for Belgium and represented them at two FIFA World Cups, helping them finish third in Russia last year.

“After 12 years of representing Belgium at the highest level, I have decided to retire from senior international football,” Fellaini said in a statement on Twitter.

“I feel the time is right for me to step down and allow the next generation of players to continue this very successful period in Belgian football history.

“I have many amazing memories… and I am very proud Belgium is currently number one in the FIFA rankings,” he wrote.

Fellaini joined Chinese Super League (CSL) side, Shandong Luneng in February, ending a five-and-a-half-year spell at English Premier League (EPL) giants, Manchester United.
