Who could forget Robbie Fowler trying to tell the referee that he was not fouled after a penalty was awarded for Liverpool against Arsenal?

Joey Barton 'forced into early retirement' following 18-month ban for betting offences

That kind of honesty is seen less and less these days as governing bodies have had to bring in rules to book players for diving in the box.

Fowler’s protests were ignored and he stepped up to take the penalty, but the same thing did not happen in Germany when a FC Bocholt player approached the man with the whistle after a penalty decision.

Antonio Munoz-Bonilla went down in phases in the box with his side losing 2-0 and the referee pointed to the spot.

The decision sparked wild protests from SF Baumberg players who surrounded the referee and as the arguments were going on Munoz-Bonilla wandered over to the huddle.

He then informed the referee he was not fouled and unlike  what happened in the Arsenal Liverpool clash, the official accepted Munoz-Bonilla’s honesty and reversed the decision.

Fair play!
