Arjen Robben shows he’s still a Chelsea boy at heart with constant digs at Arsenal

When Chelsea sold Arjen Robben, it was something of a shock to fans as the flying winger was still in his prime.

However, he has continued to show that he is a Blues boy at heart with some of the comments he has made over the years about Arsenal.

Bayern Munich have certainly had the upper hand on the Gunners in recent years, with last night’s 10-2 aggregate win adding a humiliation to Chelsea’s Premier League rivals.

Robben will also be a hit for what he did with Chelsea, and some of his comments on Arsenal just add to that status.

Arsene Wenger wasn’t overly fond of a couple of penalties that Robben won during clashes between the teams.

Robben replied with: “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.”

When the draw was made this season that Arsenal would play Bayern Munich, Robben didn’t take long to make something of a dig at the Gunners.

Speaking to ESPN, Robben said: “For them, the pressure is to make it to the quarter-final for the first time in many years. Our target is always the final. But this draw doesn’t make it easy [for either team.]”

Arsenal have played Bayern eight times in the last six years, and Robben hinted that he was a bit bored about facing the Gunners once again.

“I prefer to play Leicester,” Robben said. “That’s different… not easier, or more difficult, just different.

“If you have the choice, yeah. It was not this time ‘let’s get Arsenal again’. I like, as a footballer, to play another team who we’ve never played before.”

Following last night’s win over Arsenal, Robben said: “The first half was not good. We spoke about it before the game. We knew what was going to happen – they were going to push.

“But we were sleeping. For second balls we were not there. In the quarter-finals we have to improve.

“The second half was much better and the penalty and the red card [or Laurent Koscielny] helped.

“They played aggressive in the first half. They created some danger and some chances and had an opportunity for the second goal.

“The penalty and the sending off changes the game but I think it was a clear penalty and, if you are the last man, it is a sending off.”
