Stoke City manager Mark Hughes hopes referees don’t hold diving bias against Victor Moses

After Swansea City boss Garry Monk labelled Stoke City winger Victor Moses a cheat last weekend, his manager Mark Hughes hopes match officials aren’t holding any bias towards Moses in future games, reports the Express.

“Victor’s a strong character, but I hope this week doesn’t shape people’s view of him. What was said of him wasn’t correct. We need to recognise when these things go against you. I felt it was unjust and wasn’t correct,” said Hughes.

Swansea City found themselves 1-0 up against Stoke City last weekend, but eventually went down to a 2-1 defeat at the Britannia Stadium, with Stoke’s equalising goal being a controversial penalty won by Moses. Swansea deemed the Nigerian international to have gone done too easily under pressure from Angel Rangel, but Moses has protested his innocence.

Swans manager Garry Monk was fierce in his criticism of Moses, calling him a cheat, while suggesting he should be ashamed of his behaviour. The FA are investigating Monk’s post-match interview, and Hughes is hoping Moses doesn’t build up an unfair reputation as a diver.
