Arsenal fans made me a 'cornered dog', says Robben

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has claimed that Arsenal fans made him feel like a ‘cornered dog’ over diving accusations, according to the Daily Telegraph.

The former Chelsea midfielder was booed and criticised by Arsenal after he won the penalty which saw Gunners goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny sent off in Arsenal’s 2-0 defeat in the Champions League last-16 first leg match.


The 30-year-old believes that he should not be made the villain over the penalty as it was a clear foul.


“There's no discussion about the penalty,” said Robben “In football it goes like that, suddenly I was the fans' target and the cornered dog.


“But I couldn't help it. It was a brilliant attack with Toni Kroos. He chipped the ball over the defence and I was faster than the goalkeeper. I wanted to control the ball, but the only thing I still remember is a ‘bang’ against my leg and me lying on the ground. Of course it was a foul.”


Despite insisting that it was a clear foul, the Dutchman said that he believed the red card on the Arsenal goalkeeper to have been harsh and the dismissal was the turning point in the game.


Bayern now take a 2-0 lead back to Germany with them but Robben has stated that the tie is not over yet.


“It was a clear penalty, although the red card was perhaps debatable. I never saw the ball again after he hit me. It was the turning point of the game,” added Robben.


“We are not there yet, though. We have a lot of respect for Arsenal. They are a great team. They showed us in the opening 15 minutes what they can do.”
