Wenger: Divers Must Be Banned
Arsene Wenger has spoken out against those that seek to gain an advantage by diving or 'simulating' on the pitch.
The premiership has recently seen a national campaign to eradicate this nasty little habbit, a campaign which Arsene supports.
“We have to fight it,” he said. “There is only one way to punish people diving obviously. [That’s] retrospectively [with] suspensions.
“Once a guy knows he might be punished he will not dive.
”We are all managers. Who can say that one of their players has never dived? Nobody can say that in our League.”
“I don’t think it is a major problem in our game. I believe that basically the competition is fair in England.
“But once it is in there it is difficult to get out.”
Before the Anti-Arsenal brigade jump on their high horse, Wenger knows that critisism has been levelled at some Arsenal players over the years, and contrary to popular belief, he is not blind, yet he makes these comments knowing some of his own players could be banned.
Susspension of the players who dive can only be good for the game.
