London: Manchester United midfielder Marouane Fellaini said on Saturday that he is not a dirty player, after being branded a thug by former referee Howard Webb. “OK, I am physical, I like to win my challenge, but I am not a dirty player,” said Fellaini.

The 28-year-old , accepted that he is an aggressive player, but there is no malicious intent. “I don’t want to elbow someone. I just defend myself. I like to win my challenge when I play a game. In England there are a lot of physical challenges so if you want to win the game, you have to be aggressive. I never want to injure a player. I am not like that. I just defend myself.”
