Cardiff boss lambast Mohammed Salah for diving

Cardiff City boss Neil Warnock believes Liverpool forward Mohammed Salah dived to earn his side a penalty in their Sunday league clash loss.

Speaking to the BBC after the game, Warnock felt the penalty given to Liverpool was soft and thought they could have earned a penalty of their own.

"I just think Sean Morrison has had his shirt pulled 10 times worse than that [the penalty], I thought it was a silly, soft penalty to give - he gives the referee an opportunity to give it, but the theatrics Salah comes up with, it's a 9.9 [dive].

"I thought Morrison was tugged by Robertson in the first half. We are not getting that many things but I thought the lads were super today, nine out of the starting 11 were in the Championship last season - we should have a job swap, me and Jurgen Klopp, let him have my lot and I'll have his lot.

The manager, however, hailed the resilience of his players and fans and is hoping that they can stay afloat in the Premier League for another season.

"As a manager, you cannot ask anything more than what my lads are giving, the fans are fantastic, to hang in as we did for that time I am really proud of them.


"Brighton will be looking at their Newcastle game thinking it's a great opportunity so we might need two wins and a draw. It's difficult to see where we're going to get a break - I still can't get over the Chelsea game, if you saw the dressing room after, I have never seen people destroyed like that.

Cardiff is currently placed 18th with 31 points; three below 17th placed Brighton.
