France defender Anthony Reveillere has insisted he was unaware of England winger Ashley Young’s diving reputation.

The right-back was questioned over the Manchester United attacker’s tendency to go to the ground rather easily during a press conference, but Reveillere does not fear that the 26-year-old’s behaviour could trouble him.

Young earned himself a reputation as a diver after winning penalties against QPR and Aston Villa in the 2011-12 English Premier League campaign, but the Lyon defender is confident that the referees will not fall for the winger’s tricks.

“Young has a reputation for being a diver? I was not aware of that,” Reveillere told reporters.

“There will be strict rules during Euro 2012, though. If a player dives, he will be punished with a yellow card.

“I think that the English have been visited by the referees as well. They won’t engage in such behaviour.”

France take on England in their first Group D match on June 11.
