“Did he dive or did he not dive?” That seems to be one of the biggest talking points coming out of Liverpool’s 1 -1 result against Manchester United on Saturday.
Liverpool were awarded a free-kick just outside the box when Charlie Adam went on a run and was bought down by Rio Ferdinand. The referee awarded a free-kick which Steven Gerrard converted to give Liverpool the lead.
Now Manchester United fans and players are fuming that Charlie Adam went down too easily and it should not have been a free-kick. Adam himself believes he was bought down.
Adam said, “Well, everyone has an opinion and I felt a touch.
“If I hadn’t gone down I would have been clear through on goal so there must have been contact. That’s the way I look at it.
“I felt contact when I went past Rio and that’s the way it goes. I’m not that type of player. I’m not just going to go down easily.
“It was a foul and that is why the referee gave it and the goal was just different class. That is why Stevie is one of the best players in the world.”
Do you think Adam went down too easily? You can judge for yourself based on the video below and take the poll.
