Roy Keane tagged Ashley Young an ‘absolute disgrace regarding the Manchester United winger’s latest diving controversy.

Ashley Young is again under simulation scrutiny after he appeared to go to the pitch rather easily on Tuesday during Manchester United’s 1-0 win against CSKA Moscow in Champions League.

The veteran England international ironically flung himself over after kicking out his own leg to win the ball from CSKA defender Georgi Shchennikov. The referee didn’t punish Young but after the game was called up to clarify the incident.

And then came the funny part of the story. United legend Keane hilariously reacted in ITV: “If he’s a Manchester United player, I’m a Chinaman. It’s absolutely disgraceful.

“The senior players need to get hold of him. That shouldn’t be accepted at Manchester United. That’s not leaving your leg in. That’s different. It’s the somersault he does, it’s an absolute disgrace.

“Maybe once or twice can be seen as a mistake. But he’s done it nine or 10 times and he’s done it at his previous clubs.”

Not only Keane’s comments, his ex-United team-mate Paul Scholes also referred Young’s dive an embarrassing act.  He told: “Ashley needs to stop doing this. He knows that himself, but it’s just a habit and he can’t get rid of it. It’s so obvious and he just needs to get this out of his game. It is embarrassing and Ashley knows it.”

“He’s a really good player and he doesn’t need to resort to these tactics but I think it’s something ingrained in him.”
