The duo clashed during an international fixture between Wales and Fellaini’s Belgium earlier this season, and Coleman is anxious to avoid a potential repeat just days before his side’s crucial Euro 2016 qualifier against Israel.
United come face-to-face with the Reds at Anfield this afternoon, with Allen vs Fellaini likely to be one of the game’s decisive match-ups.
Coleman, who was quoted by the Daily Star, said: “Joe’s not the biggest player – but he has a huge heart. I have seen him taking some big whacks in the past. He took a bang in Belgium from Fellaini – that was a nasty one.
“Fellaini knew what he was doing. But he has still got to come to Cardiff, hasn’t he?”
