With friends like Arjen Robben's who needs enemies?

Yesterday Cristiano Ronaldo was in such a mood with his manager Zinedine Zidane for taking him off with 11 minutes to go that he swore at the Frenchman. If there's one man you should avoid swearing at it's probably the man who once headbutted a man in the chest for not much more.

But Ronaldo got off scot free for his outburst for the manager dare taking the decision to see the game out by bringing on a player as talented as Isco for Ronaldo- imagine the reaction if it was a Julian Faubertesque player for Real coming on!

Ronaldo is never happy, especially when being subbed off

You'd imagine once he did sit down on the bench that those teammates near him would have kept pretty quiet.

At Borussia-Park however the same could not have been said of the Bayern Munich subs who watched Arjen Robben throw a childish strop when he was taken off with five minutes left:

Bayern were leading 1-0 thanks to Thomas Muller's second half strike when Carlo Ancelotti decided to take off the Dutch winger for Renato Sanches, not exactly a bad player, but that clearly didn't matter to Robben.

Rafinha, Franck Ribery, Xabi Alonso and Jerome Boateng find it hilarious.

I once pulled a similar hissy fit in a Sunday League game when I thought I was being taken off, only to realise the manager was shouting my name as I was moving from left back to right back to accommodate the sub...

My teammates were similarly sympathetic!

Synchronised swimming will never be a sport in my eyes!
