Goal.com Poll: Is Mourinho Right About English 'Hypocrites'?

Goal.com invites readers to vote on José Mourinho's recent remarks about a possible diving culture in England. Are the English hypocrites, or is it José himself who fits the description?
In case you missed it, here's what the Portuguese boss had to say:

"I am no longer the Chelsea coach but there is a diving culture in England," Mourinho told Feelfootball.com

"I think I am right if I say that [Didier] Drogba, [Cristiano] Ronaldo, [Fernando] Torres and [Robin] Van Persie are all divers.

"These are strikers who have won plenty of penalties over the years.

"English football criticises divers but it's the coaches' who teach the players to play this way.

"Where as in Spain, Italy and Portugal, players are taught to win in the right ways by playing proper football.

"Therefore when a player moves to the Premier League, he has to adapt and learn how to dive.

"Drogba is a better player now than what he was, as is Torres and Ronaldo."


Remember, Mourinho managed for years in England and has recently stated a desire to go back, and it's fair to say that he was Didier Drogba's biggest defender during that time.

On the other hand some fans and pundits in England remain of the opinion that diving is a 'foreign disease', and maybe José's comments will see that change.

But what do you think? Do you agree with his statements? Or do you think that he was mischief-making and being a hypocrite himself? Click here to vote and we'll look at the results on Friday.
