PFA chief wants video evidence against divers

Professional Footballers Association chief executive Gordon Taylor has called for technology to be used in the fight against diving in the wake of the Santi Cazorla winning a penalty for Arsenal at the weekend in which there was no contact with the player. "This has been a non-stop subject for a long time now - how we best deal with it given the pace of the game and the difficulties for referees and the assistant referees to judge," he told SkySports.

"I think it's going to be inevitable that if technology comes in for goalline decisions and penalty decisions, then it will help in these situations.

"Other sports move on and use technology and do all they can to be as successful as football, so we've got to keep at that cutting edge."

"I don't want to personalise it because he (Cazorla) wouldn't be the first player accused of diving and he won't be the last, but it's an issue that we all need to address," Taylor added.

"Management, coaching staff, players and supporters have all got to buy into this and condemn it."
