David Moyes calls Ashley Young a Cheat

We all know what Ashley Young is all about, The Manchester United man will do anything to win a penalty for his team. In the match against Crystal Palace, He had two attempts to do what he loves doing most.. The first was an epic fail as he was booked by referee Jon Moss for a blatant dive following a challenge from  Kagisho Dikgacoi. The next was highly successful, earning a dubious penalty late in the first half after a foul by the same player. 

Moyes was unimpressed by Young, who has now been booked three times for diving in his career and is behind only Gareth Bale and David Bentley on the Premier League’s all-time list of offenders.

Moyes said: ‘I’ve always said I don’t like diving. He deserved to get booked. I don’t want any of my players diving, I don’t want anybody doing it.

‘If you look at it (the penalty), the boy definitely throws his leg out and Ashley’s leg goes into it. I think Ashley has put his leg into it. But I will definitely say to Ashley that it is not what I want.’

It is not the first time Young has been criticised by a United manager for diving. Two seasons ago, Moyes’s predecessor, Sir Alex Ferguson, said he would ‘have a word’ with the forward after incidents involving QPR’s Shaun Derry and Ciaran Clark of Aston Villa.

The 28-year-old has now earned 12 penalty awards since his Premier League debut in 2006, the joint highest by any player in the league’s history.
