London, Mar 13: Bayern Munich player Arjen Robben has slammed Arsenal boss Arsene Wenger as a ‘bad loser’ following Arsene Wenger’s ‘diver’ jibe. Wenger had reportedly singled out Robben for criticism following Arsenal’s last-16 exit to Bayern Munich in the Champions League saying that Robben is very good at getting the maximum out of nothing and is also a very good ‘diver’.
According to Metro.co.uk, Robben, who has long had a reputation for diving, has said that if someone is a ‘big manager’ then they should take their loss adding that they should be happy if their team wins, but if they lose they should not complain about ‘silly things’.
Arsene Wenger, whose team lost the tie 3-1 on aggregate, also said that Arjen Robben gets in front of a player and then slows down and goes down, getting a free-kick, but if the referee gives him a yellow card on the first one when Robben goes down, he would not do it again. However, Robben interpreted Wenger’s analysis as sour grapes and said that from a ‘big manager’ a little bit ‘more’ is expected, the report added. (ANI)
