Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini believes that Fulham defender Sascha Riether should have been sent off in United's 3-1 victory over the Cottagers at the weekend. 

The Belgian was angered by Riether's alleged stamp on Adnan Januzaj and referee Lee Probert deemed that no action was to be taken against the German. He ha since been charged by the FA and is facing a three-game ban.

In an interview with MUTV he said: "For me it was a red card, I hope the referee looks at the video later.'

Although Fellaini saw the incident, the two managers missed it and both unclear on what happened. Martin Jol said is confident if his defender does receive a ban for his challenge on Januzaj.

The Fulham manager said: "If it is true, then we have to talk to him. I have got some good back-up players as well, so that [a potential ban] is not a disaster. The result is a disaster."

David Moyes talked about Januzaj after the victory at Craven Cottage, "He is a really honest boy and I thought there were a couple of times when fouls should have been given against him but they weren't."

Former Liverpool midfielder Danny Murphy also gave his take on the incident on Match of the Day and said, "Sascha Riether is a lucky boy. He's kicked him initially and then stamped on him. It is the only aggression Fulham showed in the game and in the wrong way."
