Fellaini, Huth Handed Three-match Suspensions


Manchester United midfielder, Marouane Fellaini and Leicester City defender Robert Huth, have accepted the Football Association’s charge for violent conduct and will not miss their next three domestic matches.

The two players were charged for an incident that happened during the 1-1 draw between the two sides at Old Trafford on Sunday.

Huth appeared to grab Fellaini’s hair, before the United man swung his arm at him.

Referee Michael Oliver missed the incident, but the FA decided to review video footage.

An FA statement reads: “Marouane Fellaini and Robert Huth will both serve a three-match suspension with immediate effect after being charged with violent conduct which was not seen by the match officials but caught on video.

“The Manchester United midfielder and Leicester City defender were involved in a 21st-minute incident during their fixture on Sunday 1 May 2016.

“Both players accepted the charge. However, Huth contested that the standard penalty of a three-match suspension would be ‘clearly excessive.’
