Liverpool hero Hamann: Man Utd's Young WORSE than Suarez

Liverpool hero Didi Hamann says Manchester United winger Ashley Young must end his diving.

Liverpool hero Didi Hamann says Manchester United winger Ashley Young must end his diving.

Young has found himself at the centre of more unwanted attention over the past 24 hours after winning Manchester United a dubious penalty against Real Sociedad last night.

"Ashley Young is much worse than (Luis) Suarez has ever been," Hamann told talkSPORT.

"It's blatant cheating to try to win a penalty.

"I'm always defending players.

"Gareth Bale got a lot of stick last year but you've got to be very careful, because sometimes it's about protecting yourself in anticipation of a challenge.

"If someone comes to clatter you, your first instinct is to jump in order to protect yourself.

"Yesterday [with Young] there was no protection [issue], it was a slight touch on his arm and he stated rolling over."
