This is getting a bit ridiculous now. England’s flakiest winger Ashley Young was back to his diving best against Real Sociedad for Manchester United in the Champions League last night, winning a penalty after being brushed on the arm by a defender.
Ashley Young has come under fire from just about everyone for his diving antics in recent times.
Even Sir Alex Ferguson had a pop at Young during his time in charge for diving. The fact Fergie publicly criticised one of his own players for cheating to win him games really is saying something.
But no matter if it’s Fergie, or David Moyes having a word, Young just can’t seem to stop diving.
It’s got to the point now where you are beginning to wonder if it’s a medical condition.
Is Young simply a compulsive diver?
His situation has inspired this new motion picture: Ashley Young – Falling Down.
The adventure of an ordinary man at war with every day gravity.
This is in fact Young’s third motion picture, having previously starred in Dive Hard and Dive Hard 2. No doubt we can expect him to complete the trilogy in the next couple of weeks.
