Crystal Palace manager Sam Allardyce says the Football Association's decision to introduce retrospective bans for players who dive from next season is "utter rubbish".

Speaking at a Press Conference after FIFA announced the decision on Thursday, he said, the decision could be be reversed if it is realized that the player did not dive after all.

"So what are they going to do, say sorry and it was unlucky, that they would get that right next time? That is rubbish,"he stated.

He added that, they should bring technology in that could be looked at and "stop paying people money so they can be doing rubbish things in the game."
