Sir Alex Ferguson has warned that players have a responsibility to act as role models for youngsters after diving and dissent were the key topics at a meeting of league managers.

The Manchester United boss said the two issues were the key topics in the first Castrol/LMA European managers and head coaches forum held at the national football centre at St George's Park. The managers also had a presentation on the likely impact of UEFA's financial fair play measures, but it was discussions on player behaviour that Ferguson highlighted.

The Scot, who has previously criticised Liverpool's Luis Suarez for "diving all over the place", said: "One thing that impacts is your players' behaviour in terms of simulation, dissent, because it's an important issue because you have to be a model for young people."
