Fellaini set for long ban after apparent headbutt
Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini could be hit with a lengthy
suspension after video footage appears to show him headbutting
Stoke defender Ryan Shawcross to the ground during a Premier League
match on Saturday.
The two players were jostling during a second-half corner when
Fellaini lunged at Shawcross before attempting to make a run for
the ball. Match officials missed the incident.
Everton manager David Moyes says ”I’ve seen it, it’s a terrible
thing to do and I expect him to be punished.”
The Football Association will review the incident on Monday
before deciding whether to charge the Belgium international, who
has arguably been Everton’s best player this season.
Moyes says ”I’ve told him it’s not acceptable and whatever he
gets, he and us deserve it.”
The match at Britannia Stadium finished 1-1.
