Cristiano Ronaldo in diving incident again
Bitter words from Middlesbrough's manager Gareth Southgate after Ronaldo's 19th minute theatrics won Man U a penalty against them.
"Ronaldo is a cheat, simple as that," he said."How many times are we going to see it? The lad’s got a history of doing this.Our goalkeeper has done everything to get out of the way and yet the lad’s gone down. Once more. For me, it’s never a penalty. I don’t know what you can do about it, that’s for people better qualified than me."
When asked if video tech was the solution to the diving problem he said
"The answer is that you hope some players are going to start performing in the manner they should," he said. "And if they have the opportunity to stay on their feet, and not play for a penalty, that’s what they should do.""Ronaldo plays the way he obviously thinks is the right way. I don’t blame the referee, it’s very difficult for him as it happens very quickly. But how many times are we going to see it?"
The actual video footage of the incident could not be located at the moment...but take a look at this video and you will know why Southgate is so angry .
