Emirates legend blasts Stamford Bridge rivals.
Arsenal striker Robin van Persie has launched an incredible attack on the Chelsea and Barcelona players that harass referees.
The 27-year-old has told the Champions League winners and the Blues stars to stop bitching and get on with playing football.
The Dutch international says he ‘cannot understand’ why such great players need to constantly put the referees under pressure.
He was particularly critical of the Nou Camp players in the aftermath of the last-16 Champions League game between them and Arsenal but his wrath has now stretched to West London.
“They [Barcelona players] always go up to referees in an attempt to get an opponent booked,” Van Persie told Sport 1.
“They are trying to screw colleagues! That kind of behaviour really annoys me.
“People who are watching the game on television and fans really do not want to see these kind of things.
“If you want to witness a lot of complaints, you should just go to the bakery or something. There’s always people nagging there as well.
“Chelsea players are always bitching against the referees. I really cannot understand that. Just shut the f*** up and focus on playing football.”
