David Moyes not happy with Ashley Young

Manchester United manager David Moyes has admitted that he is not happy with winger Ashley Young after he appeared to dive in order to win a penalty against Crystal Palace on Saturday.

The English winger has built up quite a reputation of diving and after looking at replays, it is clear to see the United winger took yet another dive in order to win a spot-kick, which resulted in a Palace player getting sent off and also Robin Van Persie giving United the lead.

The champions eventually went on to win 2-0, but after the game, Moyes admitted that he wasn’t impressed by Young’s actions.

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.’

Moyes continued: ‘I don’t like the rule where every time it is the last man it means it is (a red card).’

‘I thought it was harsh. If I was Ian Holloway I would be disappointed.

‘OK, it might be a penalty. But I don’t think the boy made a challenge to wipe him out.

‘Unfortunately that is the rule.’
