Arsenal v AC Milan - UEFA Europa League Round of 16: Second Leg

There will be no consequences for Welbeck after dive against AC Milan


Despite the fact that all of Europe criticised Welbeck over his alleged dive that won him a penalty against AC Milan, UEFA will take no measures to punish the striker.

Welbeck went to the ground after minimal contact with Ricardo Rodriguez in the game with AC Milan, which eventually the Gunners won 3-1, as he managed to convert the penalty himself.

After the game, Arsenal manager Arsene Wenger shared that he did not agree on the claim that Welbeck has misled the officials and Gattuso, Milan’s coach, on the other hand, shared that he would not judge English football over this incident.

I haven’t seen it again. I will watch it again and give my honest feeling about it,” said Wenger, according to Goal. “I will give him my honest feeling about it as well, don’t worry.”

UEFA’s disciplinary commission have reportedly had a meeting on Monday but have not opened a case against Welbeck.
