Diving is an epidemic in football that can never be cured. Or at least it can’t until proper punishment is served up for the worst offenders. We’re looking at you, Kuban Krasnodar midfielder Arsen Khubulov.
He took a dive so deplorable in the recent game against Krylya Sovetov that it was worthy of a dismissal. We would be pleased to see this kind of carry-on slapped with retrospective punishment. It’s blatant cheating.
Watch Khubulov take an embarrassing dive in the box in the video below.
