Sports Letter: Acting coach

Sir: I watched the Manchester United v Internazionale match last Wednesday night and was shocked by the extremely poor "diving" technique exhibited by the Italian team when seeking a penalty or free-kick.

The timing of the falls was just non-existent and no one seemed capable of rolling around on the ground, feigning injury, with any degree of conviction.

I would suggest that Internazionale need to employ a theatrical coach who can bring their players up to the international acting standard required of today's top football teams.
