Marouane Fellaini embroiled in spit storm during Manchester derby

Monday, November 3, 2014

Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini has been accused of spitting at Manchester City striker Sergio Agüero during Sunday's 1-0 derby defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

There was a coming together between the pair in the United box, and after the penalty wasn't given Fellaini went back to give Agüero a piece of his mind.

The Belgian international was unimpressed with Agüero and shouted at the Argentina striker while he was down on the turf.

However, slow-motion footage from Sky Sports seems to suggest that Fellaini also gave the City striker a piece of his saliva.

"I have heard that it is a question on social media, but already the TV has shown that he is shouting and sometimes when you shout there's a little bit of saliva (that comes out) with it," United boss Louis van Gaal said in his post-match conference.

"I don't think that he's a spitting figure."

However, City manager Manuel Pellegrini insisted he had no knowledge of the alleged incident, saying: "It's something I don't know about."

Fellaini was cleared after being accused of a similar offence in last season's Manchester derby at Old Trafford, when Pablo Zabaleta was the alleged victim - also when laid out on the turf.
