Alan Shearer Asks Wenger To Apologise For Calling Sterling A Diver

Premier League legend Alan Shearer declared that manager Arsene Wenger owes Raheem Sterling an apology after labelling the Manchester City forward a diver following Arsenal’s 3-1 defeat at the Etihad Stadium.

Wenger felt aggrieved by the awarding of a second-half penalty on Sunday when Nacho Monreal was penalised for bringing down Sterling.


Referee Michael Oliver had no hesitation in awarding the spot kick and Sergio Aguero made no mistake from 12 yards.

That gave City a 2-0 lead, and Gabriel Jesus’ seventh of the season wrapped up the points – although Wenger was left even more frustrated by the Brazilian’s strike due to an apparent offside in the build-up.

However, the Frenchman took most of his anger out on Sterling, telling BBC Sport: “We know that Sterling dives well, and he does that [win the penalty] very well.”

His outburst angered Shearer, though, the Newcastle United legend calling on Wenger to apologise to the England international.

“I think it’s totally wrong,” Shearer told Match of the Day.

“It’s one thing to deflect from his own team’s inadequacies and deficiencies, it’s another one to question someone’s integrity and be wrong.

“I think he owes Sterling an apology there. There’s no way that’s a dive and that’s a penalty.”

  • No apology coz only a blind viewers will say he didn’t dive….

  • apologise for what? common stop that, nothing to apologise for. that was an harsh decision by the center refree, even their last goal is questionable. I am not an Arsenal fans but the truth be said d officiating was poor in that match.

  • Alan is just a corrupt person seeing truth but telling lies defines a kind of person he is and a type of player he was during his playing time, nobody is arguing Man city doesn’t deserve winning of the day but they missed their chances but the so called word cup referee with his indecision award sterlling controversies penalty and David silva Gabriel Jesus offside goal. No wander England players doesn’t nominated as world best and their teams doesn’t progress in champions league
