I was simply shocked and aghast this last weekend at the blatant cheating by Ashley Young who plays for Manchester United.
The tone was set in the 9th minute when a colleague of the aforementioned Mr. Young, French international and United full back Patrice Evra deliberately dove in the opposition’s penalty area in an attempt to fool the referee Jon Moss into giving a penalty. No penalty was given nor was a caution administered.
Later, and not much later, the first of Ashley Young’s dives came.
It happened in the 19th minute and so blatant was the dive that even the commentators, who are quite “coy” when describing the shenanigans of certain players, appeared to be lost for words.
