Uniteds Ferguson Says His Players Dont D
This week Kun Aguero made a statement in which he felt that referees were le s likely to give a foreign player a penalty in the Premier League. Alex Ferguson then made a statement which lost me. He said plenty of players have dived throughout the years and in particular foreign players. Now I do admit I dont doubt his analysis as P.K Subban Women Jersey
many foreign players do dive, but of all the managers to come out and say this, is laughable.In his statement he made Dan Hamhuis Kids Jersey
the point that Nani had not dived in the 3-2 lo s at home to Tottenham Hotspur at the weekend. Nani, in my opinion is one of the worst there is in the game at the moment for diving and falling around like he has been shot. To credit Ferguson, he did point out that Nani made a meal of the incident and as a result the ref declined his appeal for a penalty.But thats only the half of it. Another Man Utd player, Danny Welbeck, made one of the Kyle Turris Men Jersey
most disgraceful dives of the season against Wigan earlier in the season in which he fooled the referee into awarding the penalty. And it was only last season Ashley Young made some awful dives in particular against Aston Villa last April. I think its ironic that Ferguson would come out and say his players dont dive and foreigners are to blame, when two of his brightest young English stars committed the worst ones so far.But Im not just picking on Welbeck and Young as divers.

The problem is ma sive within the top level of the game. And in my opinion its now in danger of becoming acceptable. Look at any game in the Premier League and this is evident. If a player goes down in the box and there is contact its a penalty. More often than not the player could have stayed on their feet but we accept, even with the most minimal contact, that it is a penalty. And this kind of behaviour happens all over the pitch. A hand on the back and the player goes down, a slight Calle Jarnkrok Women Jersey
shrug with the shoulder, which isnt a free, and the player goes down. Football is a contact sport and should always be a contact sport. UEFA and FIFA need to look, with referees, to decide the future of the game before diving no longer becomes cheating and becomes an element in the game.
