Wenger lays in to Bayern star Robben, labelling him "a good diver"

Arjen Robben

Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger commented on Arjen Robben's diving antics after his side were dumped out of the Champions League by Bayern Munich.

The Gunners crashed out of the competition after a 1-1 draw at the Allianz Arena, which wasn't enough to overturn the 2-0 deficit from the first leg.

But manager Wenger was once again left cursing former Chelsea winger Robben, who was once again seen diving in order to win a penalty for Bayern in the second half, though it proved inconsequential as Thomas Muller had his resulting spot kick saved by Arsenal goalkeeper Lukasz Fabianski.

Robben was accused of simulation in the first leg in order to win a penalty that got goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny sent off, and Wenger was again suggesting that the Dutchman is a regular diver.

"Robben is very good at getting something out of nothing, he is a great player as well as a very good diver, that's part of it," Wenger said after the game.

"He's a fantastic player, I would not deny that, he's one of the best in the world, but he gets in front of the defender and slows down and goes down, and he gets the free kicks. If he (the referee) gives him a yellow card the first time he goes down, he will not do it again."

It was something Robben was accused of frequently during his time in England with Chelsea, and it seems little has changed as the former PSV Eindhoven and Real Madrid man continues to be criticised for his antics.
