Young refutes 'diver' accusations

Aston Villa winger Ashley Young has revealed his hurt at being accused of being a "diver''. Young admits he has had that accusation thrown at him "on numerous occasions''.

• Young not drawn on Liverpool link
• Henry tells Pires to join MLS

Youn, who could play his last game for Villa against Liverpool on Sunday, has won more free-kicks - 88 - than any other Premier League player this season.

The England midfielder, out of contract next summer, said: "I think people saying that 'I go down too easily' hurts more than being booted up in the air to be honest.

"I hear that on numerous occasions and then you look at the stats of me being the most fouled player. Is it me that's going down easily or is it that I am genuinely being fouled?

"Referees are now booking players for simulation so, if players are diving, then they're going to be booked. I've not been booked for diving but I'm the most fouled player.

"Everyone's entitled to their opinion. It's always going to be said that people are diving in the Premier League but you just have to get on with it.''

Young, a potential target for Manchester United and Liverpool this summer, is thankful not to have picked up any major injuries after the close attention he has received.

He said: "I've got cuts, bumps, bruises, everything up and down my shins, but I've come to get used to it. Touch wood, I've not had many injuries this season and throughout my career I've not had major injuries.''
