Aaron Hunt of Werder Bremen dives and refuses to accept penalty as the ref blew for the challenge on the Werder Bremen player but replays show the player diving.
Rarely seen in football, (not diving) the player refused to accept the penalty and play continues.
Moments of fair play are few and far between in the 18-yard area, so it was great to see Werder Bremen’s Aaron Hunt own up to diving and convince the referee to overturn a penalty decision in the Bundesliga this weekend.
The 27-year-old was seemingly clipped as he charged into the box of Bremen’s clash against Nurnberg, and when the referee pointed to the spot, Hunt did the honourable thing and confessed to his dive.
Of course, Bremen were winning 2-0 at the time, but I suppose we’ll still give the most Englishly-named German the thumbs up for this one.
