Rooney defends Man U teammate Young over 'diving' barbs

London, Sun, 22 Apr 2012 ANI

London, Apr 22(ANI): Manchester United striker Wayne Rooney has leapt to his England and United teammate Ashley Young's defence over the diving barbs he has faced recently.

Young has been accused of cheating in the last fortnight after diving to win penalties against QPR and Aston Villa, but Rooney believes the former Villa star is being picked on only because he plays for a successful club like United.

"It has been exaggerated because Ashley is a United player," The Sun quoted Rooney, as saying.

"In any case, at times you are trying to get out of the way of being kicked and people think you have dived. The game is so quick these days it is difficult for the referee to get some decisions right," he added. (ANI)
