Bayern Munich star hits out at Wenger

Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben has branded Arsene Wenger a sore loser and claims to be unsurprised by the way in which the Arsenal manager reacted to his team’s defeat in the Champions League.

Bayern beat the Gunners 2-0 in the first leg of their last 16 encounter, with the momentum of the tie changing after Robben had won a penalty that resulted in opposition goalkeeper Wojciech Szczesny receiving a red card.

Wenger was critical of the way in which Robben tumbled to the Emirates Stadium turf under contact from Szczesny to earn the spot-kick, which was missed by Bayern full-back David Alaba.

Robben, though, has hit back at the Arsenal boss and claims he was fortunate to escape serious injury following his collision with the Gunners No.1 shot-stopper.

"Shivers went down my spine when I saw footage of the foul again. Things could have gone horribly wrong. I have been quite lucky," Robben told De Telegraaf.

"Wenger's comments are typical for a losing coach. I don't care much about it, because it's not the first time he acts like this.

"It was a pretty scary moment for me. I picked up a serious injury in December after a similar foul from Augsburg's goalkeeper."

Arsenal travel to Munich for the second leg of their encounter with Bayern next Tuesday seemingly as good as out of the tie following goals from Toni Kroos and Thomas Muller in the initial meeting in north London.
