Wenger and Robben in war of words

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben and Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger have engaged in a verbal spat following the Bundesliga side’s win over the Premier League outfit in the Champions League on Tuesday, Sky Sports has reported.

The sides drew 1-1 on the night, with Bayern progressing 3-1 on aggregate, and Robben won a penalty late on. Lukasz Fabianski saved the spot kick but Wenger was riled by the decision after Robben also drew a penalty in the first leg that saw Wojciech Szczesny sent off.

“Robben is very good at getting the maximum out of nothing. He is a great player as well as a very good diver, but it is part of it,” Wenger said.

“He is a fantastic player, I would not deny that. He's one of the best players in the world. But he gets in front of a player and then he slows down and goes down. He gets the free-kicks.”

Robben, meanwhile, said after the final whistle: “I always say that if you are a big manager then take your loss. If you win, be happy and enjoy it, but if you lose then don't start complaining about the silly things.

“I don't want to have to defend myself. From a big manager, you expect a little bit more if you lose.”

Bastian Schweinsteiger scored on Tuesday for Bayern before Lukas Podolski equalised on the night.

It is surprising that, Robben at his age, he is cheating the refrees and the refrees can not see it. He did that again on the 11th March 2014, but the penalt was served.
