London: Manchester United defender Rio Ferdinand says diving will only be eradicated if authorities from across Europe come together to address the problem.

The issue made headlines in the Premier League at the weekend after Ferdinand's team-mate Ashley Young was booked for going to ground too easily during United's 2-0 win over Crystal Palace.

After the game, United manager David Moyes revealed that he had spoken to Young privately and asked him not to repeat his actions in future.
