'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Fellaini issues apology

Marouane Fellaini has apologised to Stoke's Ryan Shawcross and to Everton for his behaviour during Saturday's 1-1 draw at the Britannia Stadium.

The Belgian International is likely to receive a minimum of a three match ban after referee Mark Halsey and his assistants missed the incident involving Fellaini and Shawcross.

Ironically Fellaini was critical of the referees performance in the game, blaming a lack of protection as the reason why he lost his temper.

'I apologise completely to Ryan Shawcross, my team mates and to our fans at the game, There was a lot of pushing and pulling going on inside the Stoke penalty area and I didn't feel I was getting any protection from the officials.' said Fellaini to evertonfc.com

He continued: 'Nevertheless I know I shouldn't have done what I did.

'I have also apologised to the manager and the staff. I have no excuses, I was disappointed with the way I was being treated and I lost my temper, which was unprofessional of me.'


The Football Association will review the videos regarding the headbutt incident rather than all the incidents combined and any subsequent suspension will reflect that. Which should mean a shorter suspension.
