“I am no longer Chelsea manager and I don’t have to defend them so I think it’s correct if I say [Didier] Drogba is a diver,” stated Mourinho.
“[Cristiano] Ronaldo, Fernando Torres, Robin van Persie are the divers who won more penalties during the last four or five years.
“English football criticises divers. In England, coaches teach the kids how to play a game of football but in Italy, Spain and Portugal, coaches teach the kids how to win a game.
“When players go England they need to adapt. Drogba today is better than he was before. Ronaldo is better than he was. And Torres will be better too.”
“I hate diving, but I’m not happy if a player is kicked by somebody in the box and he tries to remain standing,” he added on FeelFootball.com.
“It’s very, very rare a referee gives a decision if the player doesn’t go down so I tell players not to be naive, but to be fair.”
