Van Gaal defends Fellaini over spitting claim

FELLAINI-YAYAMANCHESTER, November 3- Manchester United midfielder had spat at Manchester City’s Sergio Aguero during Sunday’s derby match at Eastlands.

During the course of a typically fiery clash between the local rivals, which Premier League champions City eventually won 1-0, Fellaini vented his anger at Aguero after the City striker appealed for a penalty towards the end of the first half. 

Aguero went to ground after Fellaini kicked his standing leg but no spot-kick was forthcoming.

Belgian international midfielder Fellaini was unimpressed with Aguero and shouted at the Argentina striker while the forward was down on the turf.

According to some observers, spit left Fellaini’s mouth in the midst of his verbal tirade but United manager van Gaal insisted it wasn’t an intentional act by his player.

“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,” van Gaal said.

“I don’t think that he’s a spitting figure,” the Dutchman added.

Fellaini endured a poor match at the Etihad Stadium, missing a chance to equalise with a poorly directed header after the impressive Aguero scored the only goal of the game when he turned in Gael Clichy’s cross in the 63rd minute.

    Obure bwana..What are you saying? Defending nothing? So the new contractor made 3-5 ceilings in different court rooms cave in? How is that possible? your ministry is known to be one of the most corrupt with big names and Indians given big contracts and in turn they give kickback. You should have thought twice before opening your mouth before the cameras. Obure Bure Bure Kabisa..your name fits you perfect.

    Is this guy still in office? Seriously? Has he seen the building yet? Honestly, Kibaki and Raila should show some seriousness and fire some of these guys immediately? This is appling.

    These are some of the leaders that Kenya dont deserve at all. He should go see the building before uttering meaningless sentences. These so called cowboy contractors simply did a shoddy job and they should be in court by now and someone taking political responsibility. They are the same kind of quacks that allow counterfeit goods in the market. Obure stop being cheap, own up and spare no rod.

      your name suggests that you come from his home area first and foremost please “make sense”  secondly please note that he eats alone not with you, please do not defend what we can see as blatant corruption….We are glad that this kind of hopeless leaders will never ever have a place in the government after next years elections

    How can one “spoil a building”?

      Exactly….was also wondering about that. Who uses that word “spoilt” to refer to anything especially a building? Milk maybe? Stick with vernacular and spare us your shame.

    What happened to Chris Obure’s face … he’s bloody super “dark”. Then keeps defending thugs as he did during the Kanu regime.

    This ain’t a blame game, it’s an indulgence into trivial arguments. Since Mutunga was appointed he’s been bossy trying to exercise authority, on the other hand the minister is countering through arrogance also trying to show they his side is not on the wrong, first of all the ministry should always inspect govt premises else what is their work! —BEING LEARNED IS ALSO A PROBLEM.
