WATCH Arjen Robben’s 2 Ridiculous Dives For Bayern Munich vs Arsenal [GIFs]

diving judges WATCH Arjen Robbens 2 Ridiculous Dives For Bayern Munich vs Arsenal [GIFs]

Bayern Munich forward Arjen Robben scored zero goals but made two dives against Arsenal in today’s UEFA Champions League match, with one of the dives resulting in a penalty for the Bundesliga club that was saved by Lukasz Fabianski.

Why a footballer of his calibre would resort to such blatant diving is beyond me, especially considering that Bayern Munich would have advanced through to the quarter-finals of the UEFA Champions League tonight even without his histrionics.

Here are the two blatant dives by Robben:

Is it time for referees to clamp down on this sort of behavior and yellow card players? What do you think? Share your opinion in the comments section below.
