Former Tottenham, Liverpool, Leeds United and Chelsea men feature, as well as a Manchester United star.

Today is Ashley Young’s birthday, with the England international turning 30-years-old.

The Manchester United man has built a reputation as a dependable Premier League level player, impressing under Louis van Gaal enough to work his way back to consistent first-team football.

Many suggested the arrival of Angel Di Maria would be the end of Young’s career at Old Trafford, but the former Aston Villa and Watford man has again become a key figure.

However, he has a negative side to his game, with Young become something of a well known diver in recent years.

Young is known to be one of the worst play actors in the Premier League, and it is something that will always cloud his career.

He is not even particularly good at diving, with his acts of going to ground easily evident for all to see. However, he still consistently wins free-kicks and penalties for his acts, and until he gets reprimanded for his actions, he will keep doing it.

To celebrate Young’s birthday, we take a look at five other famous divers who showed their theatrics in English football.

Gareth Bale - Tottenham Hotspur

Didier Drogba - Chelsea

Luis Suarez - Liverpool

Adnan Januzaj - Manchester United

Adryan - Leeds United
