Not This Time! Ramires dives again with same referee as v WBA – gets booked this time [Video & Tweets]
- January 5, 2014
Ramires dived again today v Derby as Chelsea breezed to a 2-0 victory over the Rams in the FA Cup.
One of the main talking points of the match was Ramires’ dive, which referee Andre Marriner correctly spotted.
However, it was the same ref who also awarded Chelsea a penalty when Ramires dived v West Brom earlier this season, which caused a massive outrage.
Jose Mourinho must have a serious word with his players, especially in the aftermath of accusing Luis Suarez of diving and then seeing Oscar and Ramires dive the next week.
Watch Ramires dive v Derby.

Derby manager Steve McClaren on Chelsea's Ramires 'dive': "Maybe he just fell over." Which is followed by a broad grin and a smirk.

Ramires booked for a laughable dive. Expect Mourinho to be outraged at yet more swimming-pool action from players under his management.

Ramires booked for a dive. What were you ranting about last week again, Jose?
