LONDON (AP) The English Football Association has charged Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini and Leicester defender Robert Huth with violent conduct after they clashed during a Premier League game at the weekend.
Fellaini reacted to getting his hair pulled by Huth by appearing to strike the defender with his elbow as they jostled at a set-piece during the 1-1 draw between the teams on Sunday.
The incident wasn’t seen by the match officials but was caught on video. It will now be referred to a panel of former elite referees.
The charges were announced Tuesday. The FA said the players have until Wednesday to respond.
