Moses is not a cheat - Conte

Moses is not a cheat - Conte

Chelsea boss Antonio Conte has defended Victor
Moses after he was sent off for diving in
Saturday's FA Cup final against Arsenal.
The wing-back went into the book after a foul on
Danny Welbeck shortly before the hour mark, and
soon after received his second yellow card of the
afternoon when he went to ground under no contact
from Alex Oxlade-Chamberlain inside the area in
the 68th minute.
Nevertheless, Conte refused to judge Moses and
believes fatigue played a major role in the 26-year-
old's crash to the ground.
"Honestly, I did not see the situation. I do not know
for sure, but there is a lot of attention on this
moment. Sometimes I think it could be tiredness,"
Conte said.
"We are at the end of the season and a lot of
players are tired and then there is a lot of pressure.
For sure, it is not a good situation to dive, it is true.
"But Moses is an honest player and if there was
this situation he was tired and he did not want to
cheat the referee."
Chelsea eventually ended up losing the final 2-1,
Aaron Ramsey netting the winner with 11 minutes
left on the clock.
