Nicole Carroll: A one woman mission to make a name in football

McLeish condemns Benitez dive

leave a comment »

A story thats been reported in a fair few places, but definately something that should be highlighted.

Following Christian Benitez’s dive in the 2-1 win over Portsmouth on Tuesday night, McLeish publically condemned Benitez’s dive. Attitudes like this are only to be applauded in football, opposing teams are quite right to condemn dives, and when a teams manager stands up against them, it only sends a good message for that team and the others in the league.

Following a controversial dive by Ngog in Blues 2-2 draw in Liverpool, McLeish was quick to condemn that dive too. If anything, it shows he has real balance as a manager, and brings real integrity to the game.

McLeish has had a fantastic season at the Blues, and its this discipline and wise words that increases my respect for him on a weekly basis. Hurry up and finalise his contract extension Blues!
