Chelsea boss “hates” diving… so what will he do with Ramires?

Chelsea were moments away from deservedly losing to West Brom at home this afternoon, meaning Jose Mourinho would lose his impressive home record with the blues, until Ramires dived deep in to injury time and was awarded a penalty.

Just last month, Mourinho was very critical of players who dived.

“I have told the players many times, I hate it. It is very bad,” Mourinho said. “I haven’t dropped a player because of it, but being strong and critical, I did it, yes. I spoke about it with Drogba and Robben. I am not saying I will drop someone. Maybe the player is very important for me and makes a mistake and maybe I don’t drop him. But I will strongly criticise him, yes. And if one day I win the game where I feel one of my players didn’t behave correctly, I will say it.”
