Jamie Carragher Claims the FA’s Diving Ban Spells Bad News For Manchester United

Jamie Carragher Claims the FA’s Diving Ban Spells Bad News For Manchester United

Ex-Liverpool defender Jamie Carragher claims the FA’s decision to punish divers with retrospective bans next season spells bad news for Manchester United.

Under the new regulations, a panel will be set up to review footage from the weekend fixtures every Monday in a bid to look for cases of simulation.

If a player is found guilty of diving by the panel, he will receive a suspension.

However, while Burnley manager Sean Dyche said earlier this week that such a sytem would see diving “eradicated” from the game, Carragher thinks the news is bad for Manchester United.

Clearly aiming a jibe at his former club’s fiercest rivals, and at his Monday Night Football co-pundit Gary Neville, Carragher posted this Tweet:

United players Marcus Rashford and Paul Pogba have both been accused of diving this season.

Carragher’s tongue-in-cheek comments aside, is Dyche right in saying this system will reduce the amount of players who dive in English football?
