Wenger slams English players for 'diving'

Arsene Wenger slams English players for diving antics

February 8, 2018 By Oscar Rojas
Le Prof's criticism came after Mauricio Pochettino's words about how tricking the ref was one of the essences of football.

Hours after Mauricio Pochettino's words about how football needs players to try and trick their opponents or referees, Arsene Wenger stepped up to share his views on this subject.

The French boss started a riot by criticizing those players who try to get penalties by diving. His words gathered even more attention due to Tottenham's previous game,when Harry Kane and Dele Alli were slammed for performing such antics against Liverpool, which gave them a chance to shoot two penalties.

We have to get the diving out of the game. I remember there were tremendous cases here when foreign players did it but I must say the English players have learned very quickly and they might even be the masters now," Wenger said.

Asked about Pochettino's words, Wenger tried to be a bit more political and hinted that the Argentine's words may have been blown out of proportion.

"I am convinced that he wanted to say that tricking your opponent is to say that you have to be clever. How far was it an apology for diving? I'm not sure at all," Le Prof added.

Arsenal prepare for their trip to Wembley on Saturday, when they expect to end Tottenham's winning streak at home.
