Swansea No2 Wieghorst: Chico Flores no diver

Swansea City assistant manager Morten Wieghorst is angry with claims from Stoke City that Chico Flores is a diver.

Potters striker Jon Walters says Flores should be banned for diving.

Wieghorst insists 6ft 2in centre-back Flores was really floored when he came together with Stoke's Steven Nzonzi in the first half of a 3-3 draw last Sunday.

The Dane said: "I don't think that Stoke want to go into that because if you look at the video in detail, Nzonzi did strike Chico on the throat.

"No one here wants to see play-acting, but that is not what we saw in that instance.

"We couldn't see it at the time, but the video shows you. The referee's view of it was blocked.

"I think we should put the game to rest with all the incidents. The two teams can take their point and be happy with that, because I think both sets of players and staff can feel hard done by in certain incidents during the game."
