Gary Neville Tweets why he felt Matt Jarvis should have dived for West Ham at Arsenal

BlWQLSaCEAAwqoV Gary Neville Tweets why he felt Matt Jarvis should have dived for West Ham at ArsenalGary Neville was adamant on Sky Sports last night.

The former Manchester United defender argued that Matt Jarvis should have dived when fouled by Bacary Sagna.

In a rare show of Premier League sportsmanship, Jarvis stayed on his feet and only stumbled when caught by Sagna in the box and referee Kevin Friend waved play on.

Neville, arguably the best pundit around, was adamant Jarvis should have gone down and Paul Merson also agreed with the former England full back.

During his nearly two seasons of punditry now, Gary Neville has been consistent with his opinion on diving in the modern game.

Essentially, its part of professional football, no other country on the planet frowns upon it like in the UK and the sooner English players learn to go down when touched, the better for everyone.

Presumably, as an England coach, G Nev will continue this line of thinking during the summer at the World Cup.
