“The player will be fined in accordance with our code of conduct and we will be writing to him to confirm our position,” Carson told www.chesterfield-fc.co.uk

“We will then reserve our right to take further action if deemed appropriate.”

El Fitouri has made two appearances for the club since his move to the Spireites at the culmination of the January transfer window, however has now surely jeopardised his chances of adding to that tally in the last two games of the season.

The Libya international moved to the Proact Stadium following his release from Premier League giants Manchester United, however he never made a first team appearance during his time with the Red Devils.

He was signed by Jose Mourinho’s men after a recommendation from ex-United player Phil Neville, who had cast an eye over him during his time at Salford City – the club part-owned by Neville, his brother Gary, and fellow members of the Class of ‘92 Paul Scholes, Nicky Butt and Ryan Giggs.
