Everton manager David Moyes hits back at Marouane Fellaini’s father

Everton manager David Moyes has defended his decision to play Marouane Fellaini against Sunderland last week following criticism from the player's father.



Abdellatif Fellaini hit out at the Merseyside club after his son was ruled out for the rest of the season with an ankle injury which requires surgery.

“Marouane is really in a desperate state,” said Abdellatif Fellaini. “He should never have played that last game against Sunderland.”

Moyes said: “That's completely wrong. We certainly wouldn't risk Marouane Fellaini, who has arguably been our best player this season. His dad's maybe upset because the boy is going to have another operation.”
