Robben denies spitting allegation

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has insisted he did not spit on Arsenal’s Bacary Sagna in the Champions League tie between the teams on Wednesday, ESPN has reported.

Television footage led some to accuse Robben of spitting on the right-back when Sagna was on the ground, but the clip was inconclusive and Robben is adamant not only did he not spit on Sagna, but he would never do anything like that.


“If I ever did that you could drag me off and ban me for 10 games. I don't have much hair and the sweat just dripped off,” Robben explained.


“I must make this clear: I did not spit. I would never do that in my life. If I ever spat at an opponent, I'd never be able to show my face to my family ever again.”


Robben earned Bayern a penalty as the holders won 2-0 at the Emirates Stadium, with Gunners goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny dismissed for his part in the incident. David Alaba missed from 12 yards but goals from Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller put Pep Guardiola’s side into a commanding position ahead of the second leg in March.
