KG On Diving And Young

Bafana Bafan midfielder, Kagisho ‘Dickachoy’ Dikgacoi, has added his voice to the calls for retrospective punishment for diving.

The Crystal Palace star was sent off against Manchester United last weekend after a foul on England winger, Ashley Young.

Young had earlier been given a yellow card for diving, after he fell to the ground like an ill-fated scoop of ice-cream following a clash with Dikgacoi.

The South African does not believe that he should have been sent off, and says that the referee took the easy way out when faced with giving Young a second yellow card for simulation.

"I agree that there should be a chance to take some action [for diving after matches],” Dikgacoi told The Independent.

"This has created a bad vibe after the game because it is making things difficult for the referee.

"I think he [referee Jon Moss] knew that if he had said Young dived then it would have meant a second yellow card and he would have been sent off. It was a hard position for him to be put in.

"I saw him [Young] afterwards but I wasn't going to go and say anything."

"He was going down too easily during the game and I think everyone knew it,” Dikgacoi added regarding Young.

"It's a shame because it was a big day for us going to Old Trafford and now everyone will only remember that incident."
