Diouf points finger at Rooney over diving

Bolton striker El-Hadji Diouf has admitted diving - and accused Manchester United and England striker Wayne Rooney of doing the same.

The Senegal international has a reputation for going to ground easily but claims he is just being 'very clever' when he dives in the area in a bid to win a penalty.

Diouf said: 'It's not just me who dives. If you see Wayne Rooney, how often does he dive to get a penalty?

'Sometimes I need to dive to have a penalty. It's just football. The best footballer is very clever like that.

'Sometimes I dive because I move my foot before the guy comes in to break my leg. Sometimes I get a free-kick, sometimes I don't.

'The problem is sometimes the referees are not very good with me, I've had penalties and not been given them.

'I've won some penalties like that, but how many penalties has Rooney won and nothing is ever said about him? But it is when it's me.'
