Former Manchester United winger Mickey Thomas says Ashley Young must curb his diving.

Former Old Trafford favourite Thomas claims the England winger must stop going down so easily.

“When I first saw Dikgacoi’s first challenge on Ashley Young I thought it was an penalty,” he told talkSPORT. “But then, when I saw the replay, there was clearly no contact, Young had made contact with the Crystal Palace defender.

“The referee was correct to give him a yellow card. He has a reputation for diving and that’s a stigma he doesn’t want. I had that label for a couple of years and it’s not nice, I can tell you.

“When you do get fouled, you don’t get free-kicks. He’s going to have to change the way he plays.”
