It gets more and more ridiculous every time you watch it.
Roma “tough guy” Daniele De Rossi attempted an absolute shocker of a dive in front of the referee in this weekend’s match against Chievo Verona. He pushed himself off Chievo defender Dario Dainelli and acted as if he had just been shot, and immediately collapsed to the ground.
Shameful is really the only way to describe this act. Thankfully, the referee didn’t have any of it, and it’s probably appropriate karma that Roma lost the match 1-0, which dented their chances to qualify for European competition next season.
