The worst divers in football: Arjen Robben joins the club thanks to Arsene Wenger
The Arsenal manager accused the Bayern Munich player of going down to easily
Following Arsenal's exit from the Champions League, Arsene Wenger couldn't help having a dig at Arjen Robben.
The Bayern Munich winger went over in the box late in the game to win his side a penalty.
Although there was contact, the Dutchman, who won his side a penalty in the first leg of the Champions League last-16 meeting, appeared to collapse rather dramatically.
“Robben is very good at getting the maximum of nothing. He's a great player and as well a very good diver but it's part of him,” Wenger told the assembled press after his side went out of the Champions League 3-1 on aggregate.
Later Wenger added: “He [Robben] is a fantastic player, one of the best in the world. But he doesn't need to do it [the diving]. He gets in front of player then slows down and goes down. If he gives him yellow card for the first one he won't do it again.”
In light of Wenger's comments, we've picked out the footballers more deserving of an Oscar than a spot-kick in our countdown of the worst divers in football...
