Wenger: Divers Must Be Banned

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.

With regards to Arsenal players diving, I think if Reyes stayed on his feet the best he could, he would be an awesome player. Don't get me wrong, he's a great player now, but the amount of times he goes to ground is very frustrating.

It's quite a revelation by Arsene, next he will be proposing longer bans for anyone receiving a red card!
