Diving A-League Player Told To 'Cut That F***ing S**t Out' By His Own Coach

If there's one thing us football fans absolutely despise alongside VAR, it's diving.

And it appears Adelaide United head coach Carl Veart isn't a massive fan of it either.

Veart clearly has no problem with calling out blatant divers - even if it's his own players doing it.

So when Adelaide star Kusini Yengi did his best Neymar impression by rolling around on the floor about 12 times while clutching at his face, you can imagine his gaffer probably wasn't best pleased.

While going shoulder-to-shoulder with Nikolai Topor-Stanley in a battle for possession, Yengi came off second best and went clattering to the McDonald Jones Stadium turf.

It didn't even look like Topor-Stanley's touched Yengi's face but the Reds ace insisted on dramatically rolling around on the floor.

Was he looking for a free kick or was he trying to get his opposition sent off?

Either way, it's poor form.

And as he eventually rose to his feet, he received an absolute bollocking from his boss.

"Kusini... cut that f***ing s**t out!," Veart screamed from the sideline.

Hard to argue with that, right?

But despite Yengi's theatrics, his manager saw past it and was full of praise for the youngster after the game.

"He plays with a lot of confidence," Veart said.

"Has a lot of belief in himself but he's still got a long way to go, he needs to keep working.

"But we just keep working with him because when he's direct and plays simple he's a real handful."
