Fellaini faces 3-game ban for a headbutt

Fellaini faces 3-game ban for a headbutt

The Sun informs that Everton midfielder Marouane Fellaini is set to be fined £150,000 and banned for at least three games after headbutting Ryan Shawcross during the 1-1 draw between Everton and Stoke City on Saturday.

The referee Mark Halsey missed the incidents and did not punish Fellaini for numerous assaults on Stoke’s skipper. Besides the apparent heabutt, Fellaini is caught on the camera elbowing and slapping Shawcross in the head and attempting a second headbutt. Taken in the lump these assaults may force the FA officials to adjudge even a tougher punishment and ban the Belgian for up to 9 games.

Everton coach David Moyes condemned Fellaini’s behavior and said that the club will “take the punishment if it is given.”

Fellaini himself has issued an apology to Ryan Shawcross, Everton fans and his teammates.
