Di Matteo insists Chelsea not a bunch of divers

Chelsea boss Roberto di Matteo insists his time aren't a bunch of divers.

David Luiz embarrassed himself with his tumble at Arsenal on Saturday, while Branislav Ivanovic was accused the previous week against Stoke City.

Di Matteo insisted he did not approve of diving or encourage it.

"I am against diving, absolutely," said the Chelsea manager. "It's something we should eradicate from the game.

"It's probably not easy but if there's anything that can be done then we are for it. It's probably complicated. We've been trying to get goal-line video technology introduced and it has taken years."
