fellaini receives three-match ban for red card in manchester derby

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has received a three-match ban from Football Association (FA) for headbutting Sergio Aguero during Manchester derby.

The Belgium international received a red card right after the incident, however, he was refusing to leave the field. FA did not assign extra punishment for the actions after the suspension.

While asked to comment on his team midfielder’s red card, the Red devils manager Jose Mourinho remarked: “I can guess it’s a bit of a red card and a bit of a very smart, very experienced Argentinian player [Sergio Aguero].”

Marouane Fellaini is set to miss the match against Swansea at home and the away clashes against Arsenal and Tottenham.
