Marouane Fellaini could be facing a retrospective ban for pulling Matteo Guendouzi’s hair in Manchester United’s 2-2 draw with Arsenal Wednesday night.

Six yellow cards were dished out in the feisty game at Old Trafford but somehow Fellaini, on as a second half substitute, did not receive a caution for the foul.

Fellaini, who famously cut off his own locks for his birthday a week early, stopped the Arsenal midfielder in his tracks with the act.

While some fans reacted with humour to the hair pull, many are crying foul are calling for the burly Belgian to be banned.





Fellaini now faces a nervous wait to see if the FA will take any retrospective action.

Since referee Andre Marriner saw the incident and deemed it just a foul but didn’t book Fellaini, it is unclear what action what the FA Can take, but there is precedent for a ban.

Ian Wright was slapped with a three-match ban back in 1996 when he took a chunk out of Sheffield Wednesday winger Regi Blinker’s dreadlocks, and the second incident had Fellaini himself on the receiving end when Robert Huth pulled his hair in 2016.
