The Dutchman sparked a furious debate on twitter after bending over the floored Frenchman in last night’s Champions League last-16 match, with some believing he had spit on Sagna and other arguing it was sweat dripping off his forehead.
Robben has stressed it was the latter, telling German daily Bild: “It was sweat that dripped from my head. If I had spit I wouldn’t have to bother coming home any more.”
Robben: “es war Schweiß, der vom Kopf tropfte. Hätte ich gespuckt, hätte ich nicht nach Hause kommen brauchen.”
