Manchester City manager Roberto Mancini described Peter Crouch's opener for Stoke City as "like basketball" after the Premier League champions dropped two points at the Britannia Stadium at the weekend.
Crouch appeared to handle the ball twice as he bundled past defenders to net what can accurately be described as a 'Stoke goal' to give the Potters the lead on Saturday.
The England international did jokingly concede there was a "slight suspicion" of handball during his post-match interview as he effectively admitted his sin.
However Crouch is far from the only man in English football to have displayed honesty during or after a game...
