Manchester City skipper says Ronaldo conning refereesMay 9th, 2009 - 5:26 pm ICT by ANI
London, May 9 (ANI): Manchester City captain Richard Dunne has accused Manchester United striker Cristiano Ronaldo of conning referees ahead of tomorrow’s derby.”At times, he can be running so fast any nick could send him tumbling. He makes the most of the situation, I suppose. Some referees give free kicks but some don’t. He is the best player in the world and he plays the game to his advantage,” The Sun quoted him, as saying.Dunne also had a go at Chelsea after Barcelona knocked them out of the Champions League in stoppage time on Wednesday.
Asked if he felt too much diving had crept into the game, he replied: “It has more and more but you just think what goes around comes around. You dive around and teams score against you in injury time!”
Dunne, sent off three times this season, knows Manchester City have to keep a tight leash on United superstar Ronaldo in tomorrow’s showdown at Old Trafford.
The Irish defender said: “Diving or not diving, he’s impossible to mark when he’s on form. (ANI)
