Fellaini's father was clearly upset at Evertons decision to play his son and said "Marouane is really in a desperate state,"
''He should never have played that last game against Sunderland. He should never have been allowed to play because he was already injured."
Everton boss David Moyes hit back by saying "That's completely wrong. We would never do that, it's a load of rubbish.
"We had to hold the boy back from training on the Tuesday and Thursday and he trained Friday.
"His dad's maybe upset because the boy is going to have another operation on Monday.
"Who would do that? We wouldn't - of course we wouldn't.''
