Ashley Young won a penalty for Manchester United against Crystal Palace after going down during a driving run into the box.

He had already been in trouble with the referee, however, for this astonishing dive. The incident earned him a yellow card.

Young's manager David Moyes was hardly happy with what he had seen. In quotes picked up by Derek Hunter of the Daily Mail, he said the following:

I’ve always said I don’t like diving. He deserved to get booked. I don’t want any of my players diving, I don’t want anybody doing it.

If you look at [the penalty], the boy definitely throws his leg out, and Ashley’s leg goes into it. I think Ashley has put his leg into it. But I will definitely say to Ashley that it is not what I want.
