Dunne tells it like it is. Ronaldo is a diver

Let's face it, Richard Dunne is right. Cristiano Ronaldo is a diver.

Yes, the Manchester City captain has today added even more spice to Sunday's eagerly anticipated Manchester Derby by claiming the FIFA World Player of the Year is, in fact, a diver.

Speaking about the Portuguese winger, Dunne had this to say : "Ronaldo is the best player in the world, but he plays the game to his advantage. At times, he can be running so fast that any nick could send him tumbling. He makes the most of the situation, I suppose."

"Some referees give free-kicks and some don’t, but whether he’s diving or not diving, he’s impossible to mark when he’s on form."

I'm glad someone has finally come out and has admitted what the majority of other players in the Premier League feel. There is no doubt that Ronaldo is, on his day, head and shoulders above anyone in the league but when he starts with his stupid antics, he really does lose a lot of respect amongst his fellow pro's and indeed opposing sets of fans. It's no wonder he is booed every other week when United travel away from Old Trafford.

I am just praying now that Dunne and Ronaldo are involved in a few questionable decisions during tomorrow's game. Is Dunne right? Share your thoughts by leaving a comment below.

    Dunne should have kept quiet. Ronaldo is like a rattlesnake. Leave it alone and don't give it any motivation to attack you. Drogba is the same, remember when Benitez said something similiar in last year's champions league and a motivated drogba went on to ripp the p*** out of their defence? Expect the same with Ronaldo tomorrow
