Sir Alex Ferguson has hinted foreign players only have themselves to blame if they are not treated fairly by English Premier League referees.
After Manchester City failed to get what he believed were two cast-iron spot-kicks at Fulham on Saturday,
Ahead of Manchester United's Champions League encounter with Romanian champions CFR Cluj, it was a debate Ferguson did not want to enter.
However, he suggested the Premier League's foreign legion are the architects of their own downfall.
"As a subject it is not worth going down because we have known for quite a few years there are plenty of players diving and, you have to say, particularly foreign players," said the United boss.
Ferguson was grumbling at the treatment of Nani at Old Trafford on Saturday.
Three days on, Ferguson stands by his belief it was a penalty.
And he was happy to excuse Nani of any accusation of diving.
"Nani is not the type to dive," said Ferguson. "He has never been that type of player.
"It was a penalty kick on Saturday. Sometimes you get them, sometimes you don't.
"From the referee's position it was difficult because there were plenty of bodies in front of him. The linesman could have helped him but he didn't."
