Gary Lineker responds to Mauricio Pochettino's controversial comments on diving

The comments come after Spurs Midfielder Dele Alli was cautioned by referee Jon Moss for simulation during Tottenham's 2-2 draw away to Liverpool on Sunday.

'Of course, he (Alli) is not ideal.

While referees should assess each decision on the evidence before them, they are fully aware of players who have conned their way to penalty decisions in the past and Alli's reputation now goes before him, with the consequences evident in the last few days.

"Football is a creative sport, in which you need talent and a very smart brain". Twenty years ago, 30 years ago, all congratulated the player when he tricks the referee like this!

Spurs coach Pochettino says England striker is the best person to answer questions about his future Harry Kane is happy at Tottenham Hotspur but only the England striker himself can answer questions regarding his long-term commitment to the Premier League club, manager Mauricio Pochettino said. Yes, in Argentina, but in England too.

He added: "You believe that in England you were honest and always ideal?"

Pochettino said: "There is too much focus on this type of situation, I think it is a minimal issue". It's a mix that I am anxious that maybe we are going to kill the game.

There is no doubting that Alli can achieve anything he wants from the game; however, it does worry me that he is being influenced by those off the pitch that will ultimately be his downfall if he doesn't make some notable changes in his life. "I am anxious that in a few years, the sport we love and that people love to watch around the world, will be pushed into a very rigid, structured thing - with the VAR and with being focused too much on the small actions like this". For them, football is a game that should be played non-stop without any breaks and any technological intervention. I heard Valdano say on television in Spain: 'I loved the football of the 1990s.' I agree with him.

What's that? English players diving is only a recent trend that began after the arrival of foreigners and their influence? In 10 months, over the whole season, sometimes it is against you, sometimes it is for you. For me, I like this type of football.

Pochettino said Alli could be rested for Wednesday's FA Cup fourth-round replay against Newport County at Wembley but Toby Alderweireld and Danny Rose are expected to start as they approach match fitness. "Of course, and he [Alli] deserves it, but don't go more insane". The 21-year-old Englishman was booked immediately after he went down in the box with zero contact from an opponent, much to the delight of the Kop End faithful.
