Manchester United manager David Moyes has confirmed that he has given Ashely Young a warning over the diving incident that occurred in United's 2-0 victory over Crystal Palace this weekend.

Moyes is a long time critic of divers and has reiterated his belief that retrospective punishment should be used to help referees if necessary.

"You can never be sure it won't happen again, but I have had a word with him privately," said Moyes.

"I said after the game and I have said for many years, diving is something we should have retrospective video for. That would help referees no end".

The 28-year-old winger was booked for simulation, before earning a penalty after another controversial incident with Kagisho Dikgacoi at Old Trafford. Robin van Persie converted the spot kick, securing three points.

Young's booking has prompted much debate about the diving issue and the Eagles chairman Steve Parish thinks offenders should be sent off.

The United boss went on to say: "It is really difficult at times. Moving from Everton to Manchester United doesn't change my views on that."

Moyes made it clear that Young got the punishment he deserved. 

"The referee on Saturday did what he had to do, he gave him a yellow card, he gave the punishment for it so I don't see why the debate should go on any longer."
