A video of Manchester United players diving has caused some jokes
Chris Smalling, Ander Herrera and Juan Mata have had a trip to the pool.
Chris Smalling has posted a video of himself and fellow Manchester United players Ander Herrera and Juan Mata diving into a pool.
Naturally, with the connotations of the word “diving” to football, there were some obvious jokes to be made.
You’ve got to say Smalling’s composed dive at the end has won that there.
Of course this post to the 28-year-old defender’s social media pages was far more about the joke than the dives though – and some took it as a golden opportunity for a dig.
This is not what 'play more like Manchester City' means lads.— Sachin (@HelloFromSachin) January 10, 2018
However, for Red Devils fans, the trio’s trip to the pool was a point of concern.
