Dikgacoi echoes Moyes’ call for FA to punish divers

Crystal Palace midfielder Kagisho Dikgacoi, who was at the centre of the Ashley Young diving controversy at the weekend, has joined Manchester United’s manager, David Moyes, in calling on the Football Association to punish simulation retrospectively.

The South African international who was dismissed on Saturday after referee Jon Moss ruled he had denied Young a clear goalscoring opportunity.

Young had also been booked for diving earlier in the match after he stuck his leg into Dikgacoi and was publicly admonished by Moyes, with the United manager stating yesterday that he would welcome the introduction of video evidence to clamp down on the practice.              

Dikgacoi, above, welcomed Moyes’ stance and admitted that Moss had been put in an impossible position. “I agree there should be a chance to take some action [afterwards],” he said yesterday. “This has created a bad vibe after the game because it is making things difficult for the referee.” MORE
