BEIJING, June 20 (Xinhua) -- Dalian Pro head coach Xie Hui said his team looks forward to playing against Shandong Taishan's Marouane Fellaini as big-name stars are a rarity in the Chinese Super League.

Dalian Pro is to face Shandong Taishan on Tuesday in the fifth round of the Chinese Super League where Fellaini, who came on as a substitute in the last two games, is expected to play more time after having fully recovered from an injury.

"You can count the number of world-class players like Fellaini in our league on the fingers of one hand," said Xie Hui.

"After they leave our league, we will probably not have players like them for a long time. So it's an honour for my players to have the opportunity to play against a world-class player," he added.

Fellaini sat out Shandong's first two games due to injury. He was brought on as a second-half substitute in their next game against Guangzhou City and headed in the sole goal of that tie.

"You will see more of Fellaini in this match against Dalian Pro," said Shandong Taishan head coach Hao Wei at Monday's pre-match press conference. Enditem
