Sterling favourite to be retrospectively banned for diving next season

Date Posted,May 18, 2017

Raheem Sterling is the favourite to receive a retrospective ban for diving or feigning injury next season after the FA announced new regulations.

New rules will mean a panel will review cases of simulation every Monday after the weekend’s action.

The FA will define the infringement as a ‘successful deception of a match official,’ with those found guilty set to be handed a suspension.

Sterling was booked for simulation against Swansea and was also carded in the Champions League against Barcelona. Leroy Sane and Alexis Sanchez are also strong contenders to be penalised first.
