The Professor might like to watch this video and climb off his high horse
Arsene Wenger has been frantically hunting around for scapegoats after a disastrous week for Arsenal and thought he had got one in the shape of Public Whipping Boy of the Week, Didier Drogba. Wenger claimed that the Chelsea striker had dived to win the free-kick which lead to the Blues’ opening goal.
He said: “We live in a league now where the divers are rewarded. It is not right, but it is like that. It’s down to the referee to do his job.”
Woah! Slow down, Mr Self Righteous. The video above shows that Arsenal players were attempting worse dives than Drogba. It also shows that divers are not always rewarded in this league, which is a shame because Adebayor deserved to be rewarded with a yellow card.
