Hodgson supports Palace boss Pulis fining his divers

England coach Roy Hodgson is backing Crystal Palace manager Tony Pulis' decision to fine his divers.

Pulis announced this week he would fine both Jerome Thomas and Marouane Chamakh for their antics in the draw at Swansea City.

Hodgson gave his backing to Pulis but admitted he cannot enforce similar fines on his England squad as the FA doesn't pay their wages.

"We don't fine players at England as the players don't earn any money," he said.

"Obviously he [Pulis] thinks that is important and all of us are in agreement that diving is a bad thing to do in terms of your professionalism as you are hurting fellow professionals."
