Can someone imagine what would've happened if this was Salah and not KDB? We go from ''smart player'' to ''cheater'' real quick. You need to pull a knife and stab Salah for him to get anything.
The problem is that football as a sport never dealt with the diving issue (among others like time wasting). Catch a few clear cases of diving ( the no contact ones just so there's no doubt) and give them a straight 10 games ban. When the likes of Harry Kane and co realize that yes they'll get their goal, but sit at home for the next 10 games after that, they and their clubs will quickly put an end to that nonsense that has become generalized. Instead, nothing is done and it forces each team to participate to that disgrace one way or another.
I mean, we are at a point where people get upset because of VAR offside calls, which are objectively correct no matter how close and ridiculous they are, but diving and massive time wasting is a non issue in the eyes of a huge slice of supporters.
