VIDEO: Chelsea loanee Traore booked for ridiculous dive

The Ajax forward ended a fine dribble by hurling himself into the penalty area in melodramatic fashion, but the officials were not amused

We've all seen some fairly horrendous dives over the years, but Bertrand Traore's dying swan impression is up there with the very best. 

Traore, currently on loan at Ajax from Chelsea, burst through against Excelsior with a fine dribble. 

His copybook was blotted, however, by a frankly terrible attempt to win a penalty by hurling himself into the area. 

The 21-year-old was shown a yellow card, and must feel a little silly now about such a blatant attempt at conning the officials.
