Liverpool icon Phil Thompson has called on Brendan Rodgers and Manchester United's David Moyes to intervene in their players' diving antics.

Returning Reds striker Luis Suarez and United winger Ashley Young are both in the gun.

Thommo told the Daily Star: "I think players everywhere need help and it's down to THE managers.

"In terms of diving Luis needed to be told and he got his act into gear last season with that.

"That was before the Ivanovic incident, anyway.

"The same goes for the likes of Ashley Young too, who's been involved with diving, or simulation as it's called.

"It's down to managers to tell them what's right and what's wrong."
