Gary Neville defends Adnan Januzaj’s dirty dive for Man United v West Ham

Sunday, December 22nd, 2013

Opinion has been pretty much one-sided since Adnan Januzaj was booked for diving minutes after scoring in Manchester United’s win over West Ham on Saturday.

Of course, this was not the first time Januzaj has been yellow carded for simulation, this also took place at Sunderland after he scored his first two Premier League goals for Manchester United.

In typical English style, all fans and pundits have called for Januzaj to stamp diving out of his game, after all, it is frowned upon in Blighty.

As ever, Gary Neville has brought a differing opinion to proceedings and whilst most people will cite the Sky Sports pundit’s long-term links with Manchester United, he does make some good points.

Januzaj could not have known James Collins would pull out? And, being hit by the Welshman would have hurt and potentially injured the United youngster.

Similarly, Neville’s point about Aaron Ramsey is a fair one, although you suspect the Arsenal midfielder did not have much time to weigh up Ryan Shawcross’ infamous assault.
