Danny Welbeck will not face any punishment for his alleged ‘dive’ in last week’s Champions League win against Milan.
The striker caused a storm after going down easily to win us a penalty which proved to be the equaliser just before half time and virtually finish the tie as a contest. Welbz himself got up and despatched then spot kick for 1-1 on the night, 3-1 over the 2 legs before we scored another two in the second half to see us into the Quarter Finals where we will face CSKA Moscow in April over two legs.
AC Milan boss Gennaro Gattuso said it was a mistake by the referee and not the player, which Arsene Wenger, in true Arsene Wenger style said that he didn’t see the incident on BreakingNews.ie.
“I haven’t seen it again. I will watch it again and give my honest feeling about it, I will give him my honest feeling about it as well, don’t worry…”
UEFA had a meeting today to discuss last week’s games, and a spokesman confirmed that there would be no case against DGW. This season has seen a string of dive rows, mainly involving Tottenham, namely Dele Alli and Harry Kane, the former having perfected the art of going down easy in the box as demonstrated in a recent video which emerged of him online – the players remains unpunished despite several obvious dives throughout the season.
Welbeck has scored 7 goals in 31 appearances in all competitions and continues to be our lone, senior striker option due to injuries to Alexandre Lacazette and the cup-tiedness of his team mate Pierre Emerick Aubameyang.
