Robben Diving? Bayern winger threw himself to the ground in Arsenal box [Vine]

Arjen Robben is one of football’s great pantomime villains.

Loved and loated…actually, mostly just loathed, for his petulant and grating style, the Dutchman is one of the best players in the world yet that’s rarely remembered in the midst of all his playacting.

The Dutchman broke the habit of a lifetime against Arsenal tonight, by diving (yes, Robben, diving!) in a lame bid to get a penalty; but no dice.

Also, note the lack of an appeal from teammate Philip Lahm in the background.

He’s seen that too often on the training ground to be fooled by it anymore.
