Stoke City boss hits out at Chelsea star Oscar for diving
Chelsea star Oscar has been criticised by Stoke City manager Tony Pulis, following his yellow card for simulation during the Blues’ 1-0 win at Stamford Bridge yesterday.
The young Brazilian was booked by referee Michael Oliver for seeming to dive whilst in the Potters’ area, which Pulis has deemed "laughable".
The 54-year-old has also hit out at right-back Branislav Ivanovic, who escaped a caution when he appeared to go down too easily in the penalty area during the first half.
He said: "What really disappointed me was the simulation. Ivanovic's penalty appeal in the first-half was laughable, and the lad Oscar, who's a fabulous player, did something similar in the second-half.
"This is England. We can't watch people just fall over and not talk about it.
"We should highlight it and keep on highlighting it, because it's a part of the game we don’t talk about enough."
Ashley Cole’s late goal sealed the win for Chelsea, but it was the referee who was at the centre of attention.
Pulis also believes that Seleção international David Luiz should have been sent off for his bad challenge on Jonathan Walters.
