Van Gaal: “Payet more or less dived”

Red Rants at related • 0 views

Louis Van Gaal has accused Dimitri Payet of diving just before scoring the opener for West Ham on Sunday. The Frenchman had already been booked when it went down after making contact with Marcos Rojo in the box, only for Martin Atkinson to deem the contact not worth of a penalty.

However, given that Payet was already on a yellow card, some suggested he should have received a second yellow.

Dimitri Payet was booked after 55 minutes for fouling Jesse Lingard. 10 minutes later, he went down in the box under a challenge from Marcos Rojo.

Louis van Gaal claimed Payet had dived after the game while Slaven Bilic, unsurprisingly, argued he didn't.

Referee Martin Atkinson didn't award a penalty, but then also didn't book Payet for diving.
