Everton ace Fellaini unhappy with Liverpool fans

Everton star Marouane Fellaini admits he's amazed by the passion of local fans.

Fellaini says he's singled out for his hair.

He said: "The English are crazy about the game. It's good, but it exceeds the limits at times.

"For example, a guy stopped me in the street to show me the Everton tattoos on his back.

"And sometimes there is trouble with fans of other clubs if you go out in the evening.

"On one occasion a Liverpool fan had nothing better to do than pull my hair - once, twice, five times - and it got annoying.

"I felt it best to go home in order to avoid any trouble.

"I like the fact that Everton fans wear wigs in my honour. It shows they identify with me, and it is pleasing to be recognised."
