FIFA vice-president wants crackdown on diving
FIFA vice-president Jim Boyce wants the FA to have the power to punish players who dive, according to Sky Sports.
The British representative at FIFA wants the “cancer” of diving to be dealt with via disciplinary committees by all of football’s governing bodies and believes such action will make under pressure Premier League referees’ jobs a lot easier.
“I have seen several incidents recently, and I watched the latest Suarez incident two or three times, and to me it is nothing less than a form of cheating.
“It is becoming a little bit of a cancer within the game and I believe if it is clear to everyone that it is simulation then that person is trying to cheat and they should be severely punished for that.
