Arjen Robben Slams Media For Carlo Ancelotti Quotes

By Keegan Kruger - Oct 04, 2017 05:44 PM @KeeganKruger

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has slammed the media for publishing "nonsense" quotes of him criticising former manager Carlo Ancelotti's training methods.

Ancelotti Comments On Bayern Sacking

The Italian manager was sacked by the Bavarian club last week after they were convincingly beaten 3-0 by Paris Saint-Germain in the UEFA Champions League.

The Netherlands international has now told members of the media that quotes of him talking about his former manager's training sessions were fabricated.

"All of a sudden things are appearing in the media that I would like to distance myself from – these so-called quotes are nonsense," Robben told NUsport.

"I hate it when things like this happen. I am the last person out there who would have a go at a coach, a fellow player or anyone else.

"You have to be a man when someone leaves and don't hit out at anyone."

7 Manager's Linked With Bayern Job?

The 33-year-old has made nine appearances for Bayern this season, scoring two goals and assisting another further strike.
