Moyes: Fellaini incident not acceptable

Published 1 Comments

Everton boss David Moyes admitted midfielder Marouane Fellaini should have been sent off in the 1-1 draw at Stoke, branding the Belgium midfielder's apparent headbutt on Ryan Shawcross as "not acceptable".

Fellaini is facing the prospect of retrospective action from the Football Association over the incident in the second half - seemingly missed by the match officials - where he appeared to thrust his head into the face of Potters captain Shawcross as the two men jostled with each other for position in the hosts' box.

"We will take the punishment if it is given for it," Moyes said. "I have told him (Fellaini) in the dressing room that it is not acceptable - I won't accept it as a manager that he does that."
