Open to Question?
Following the moment of madness, against Stoke City, on Saturday afternoon, Marouane Fellaini is a man in the news this morning.
The Belgian international, linked with being on Chelsea`s wish-list this January, executed the perfect head-butt to flatten the Stoke City defender Ryan Shawcross.
Fortunately, at the time, for Fellaini, his actions were missed by all the officials, unfortunately for the Belgian, his actions were seen by the television cameras and he will, inevitably, face justice.
Already condemned by David Moyes, for his actions, it`s now being suggested that Fellaini could pick up a ban, from the Football Association, for anything up to 9 games, following three separate incidents a the Britannia Stadium, as well as copping for a club fine from Everton Football Club.
But the suggestion from one news source is that the consequences of any such ban could enhance Fellaini`s chances of being sold by Everton and that one of the interested clubs may well get their wish and acquire his signature for a fee thought to be approaching £30 million.
Although quite how it`d sit with an expensive acquisition still serving a lengthy ban is open to question.
