Manchester United ace Cristiano Ronaldo and Chelsea's Didier Drogba have been warned not to embarrass themselves with their diving this season.

PFA chairman and Charlton coach Chris Powell, who rapped their theatrics last term, told the People: "They embarrass themselves, their clubs and fans they play for.

"Fellow players don't like to see it and I don't like to see it. Players play an important role and should realise youngsters are watching. If they are out of order, youngsters copy them.

"There have been incidents which were highlighted. I've told players at awards dinners that it's an emotional game but players sometimes overstep the mark.

"These are two players who were excellent last season. But you can be scrutinised playing for one of the big two."
