Manchester United boss Ferguson speaks with Young over diving accusations

Ashley Young has been instructed by Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson to not go down so easily under mild challenges, the Daily Telegraph has reported. The advice comes after two successive weeks saw the England winger win penalties for his side when there appeared to be little to nothing in the challenge to justify a spot kick.



Young first delivered a penalty to United against Queens Park Rangers after a slight coming together with R’s midfielder Shaun Derry, who was subsequently sent off. A week later Young appeared to be tripped by Aston Villa defender Ciaran Clark but replays showed that while there may have been contact between Young and his former teammate, it was minimal and Young also exaggerated his fall, going down in a manner more theatrical than was perhaps necessary.


The Telegraph notes that a United fanzine has criticised Young for his actions, with Red Issue condemning Young’s “” while Ferguson revealed he had spoken with his player. The manager said: “I have had a word with Ashley. He understands where we are coming from. Hopefully it makes a difference.
