Van Persie: Sometimes I exaggerate falls

Robin Van Persie has admitted he has exaggerated a fall if he feels the challenge warrants a penalty as the issue of diving continues apace.

• Hill-Wood: I have faith in Wenger
• Fulham v Arsenal - LIVE on ESPN

The Arsenal striker insists he is against diving but freely admits it is defensible to embellish a tumble if he has been pushed by a defender.

Van Persie's comments come after his team-mate Eduardo was banned by UEFA for alleged diving against Celtic in the Champions League qualifier although his suspension was subsequently overturned.

Asked if he had exaggerated a fall, Van Persie told The Times: "Yes, I did. Sometimes when you are in the middle of an action and you get a little push and you know there's nothing more to take.

"Then you are in the right to show in a way to the ref that you are pushed. That's not really diving. It's just showing ... 'Come on, he just pushed me, so I can't score now.'

"You sometimes have a little movement with your arms or with your body, but I don't think that's really cheating. It's never my intention to dive, anyway. It is a bit tricky I have to say because I am against divers. It is just not honest. But it is difficult because, sometimes, like I had a little moment against Manchester United [in the 2-1 defeat at Old Trafford last month].

"For example, after the whole Eduardo thing, when I had the ball on the right side and I cut it back. Patrice] Evra gave me a little push - a really little one - but it sort of outbalanced me. I just fell down and the whole stadium started to boo me. I was, like, 'Come on, can't you see he pushed me?'

"Some people don't see these little pushes and they can give you a whole different picture to what the situation really is. It doesn't play on my mind, never, because I always have the intention not to dive. But sometimes you are out of balance, it looks a bit funny.''
