Jonathan Walters: Hoping the FA ban Swansea's Chico Flores

Flores appeared to suggest he had been hit by Steven Nzonzi with replays suggesting that there was minimal contact from the Potters midfielder.

Walters reckons the Spanish defender was trying to get Nzonzi sent off and should be reprimanded for his conduct.

"For someone to fall over clutching their face when he hasn't been touched, trying to con the referee, should be banned," he told The Sentinel.

"The powers that be should look at that. It's the same as a dive. They need to look at it because it's disgraceful."

Walters scored during Sunday's entertaining game and says Swansea were fortunate to finish the match with 11 men.

"In my eyes, he should get sent off himself for that," he said.

"Nzonzi did not touch him, so for him to react like that, to try to get another professional sent off, there has got to be really strong action."

t's why Mourinho is so successful. He gives players a specific, limited set of functions to perform. They are but a cog in a machine. Do no more, do no less. I assume he learnt it from LvG :)

really hope that someone in the mainstream media spots that the Bayern manager played for and managed Barcelona quite well, and thinks to mention it in the build up. That would be really interesting.
