Queue repeated, tedious, inane: “banned from diving” gags…
Manchester United’s much maligned winger Ashley Young has been banned from driving for six months for doing 71mph in a 50mph, BBC News reports.
As expected, Twitter has gone into overdrive mocking the Englishman, who has been involved in a number of diving controversies in recent weeks.
Here’s some of the best/worst…
Ashley Young was so excited after his performance on Tuesday that he decided he was batman n got himself banned from driving for 6 months.

Ashley Young driving ban? Should be diving ban, am I right? (Seriously though…road safety is a big issue and he should be ashamed).

So because Ashley Young managed to score a curler from outside the box he decided to go over speeding
