Arsenal’s French midfielder Matteo Guendhouzi has mocked Marouane Fellaini by joking that jealousy was the motivation behind the Belgian’s dirty hair-pulling incident during Wednesday’s 2-2 draw with Manchester United.

Fellaini was caught pulling the young midfielder’s hair to stop his run in the dying minutes of the highly entertaining affair at Old Trafford.

The youngster told French radio RMC: “There was a little bit of jealousy I think. He does not digest, perhaps, being short-haired.”

The former Everton man has been known for his giant afro since his arrival in England 10 years ago and recently took a shock decision to shave it.

Despite the incident, reports claim Fellaini does not risk further punishment because it was clearly seen by referee Andre Marriner who gave a foul.

Two years ago, Leicester City defender Robert Huth received a three-match ban for a similar offense involving Fellaini.
