The Netherlands international was once again making the headlines after the second leg of the two clubs’ Uefa Champions League round-of-16 clash at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday night, which the Bundesliga champions won 3-1 on aggregate to advance through to the last eight of Europe’s premier club competition.

And after the full-time whistle, the experienced Gunners boss once again accused the Dutchman of simulation after he fell down in the area under no apparent challenge from Arsenal’s Santi Cazorla, before then winning his side a late spot kick for the second game in a row against the Premier League outfit.

However, Robben hit back at Wenger, saying: “I always say if you are a big manager then take your loss … if you win be happy, enjoy, but if you lose don’t complain about silly things.

“It was two penalties but I don’t want to defend myself. From a big manager you expect a little bit more.”
