Stoke boss Tony Pulis accuses Sunderland’s David Meyler of play-acting

Have your say

STOKE boss Tony Pulis accused David Meyler of play-acting to get Robert Huth sent off in yesterday’s 1-0 win for the Black Cats.

“I have watched it twice now,” Pulis said. “Robert has committed himself and then pulled out of the challenge and he hasn’t touched the kid at all.

“The disappointing thing for me is – and it has become more ingrained in the game – is the reaction of the player. It is something I think Gordon Taylor and the PFA should really get to grips with.

“You get situations when players are falling around and rolling around when they have not even been touched. For me, when players do that, it is cheating another professional and they are all part of the same union.

“I find that a disease that we should stamp out as quickly as we possibly can.”

What did you think of the foul, Meyler’s reaction, and sending off.
