Liverpool legend wants Man Utd star to leave England

Jamie Carragher never wants to see Marouane Fellaini playing in the Premier League again after growing tired of the Man United midfielder's persistent foul play.

The lanky Belgian is currently serving a three-match ban for striking Robert Huth with an elbow during United's Premier League draw with Leicester last weekend.

The suspension will keep Fellaini out of action for United's final three league fixtures of the season, leaving him free to play in the FA Cup final against Crystal Palace – a privilege that Carragher does not believe he deserves.

Fellaini has earned himself a reputation for using his height to hit opponents with his elbows, and this is something Carragher believes should have landed him a heavier punishment.

Speaking in his Daily Mail column, the Liverpool legend said:

It can't be right that he will be available for Manchester United's big day against Crystal Palace on May 21. My personal hope is that we would never see him playing in the Premier League again.

Three games is not a sentence that will prove a deterrent to Fellaini. He is a repeat offender and it has gone beyond the point now where people can attempt to defend him by saying he is a tall lad who is using his arms for leverage.
