Manchester United manager Sir Alex Ferguson believes it is down to England's clubs to stamp out the scourge of diving.

Stoke boss Tony Pulis called for retrospective action against divers following the game in which Liverpool's Luis Suarez recently admitted he deliberately cheated in an attempt to win his side a penalty. Ferguson confirmed he was forced to lecture Cristiano Ronaldo and feels it is down to the clubs rather than the Football Association to impose discipline.

"Do the sanctions come from the club or the FA?" said Ferguson. "The FA have a problem because is it legal? How can they prove a lad has purposely dived? It is very difficult. The FA have always said that. Does it go to the clubs? At the end of the day it probably does."
