Fragile Arjen Robben breaking several bones in his hand while trying to strangle Thomas Muller.

Arjen Robben does not appreciate it when his teammates moan about his wayward free kicks. When Thomas Muller gestured to express his disapproval of Arjen Robben's second half free kick in Bayern's 3-1 in over Werder Bremen on Saturday, Robben took exception. So, the glass Dutchman who scored Bayern's first goal of the match got in Muller's face and grabbed him by the throat (pictured above) then hit him in the face (below).

After the match, Robben explained why he snapped. From Sky Sports:

"I hate it when team-mates constantly raise their hands and complain," said Robben.

"It is disrespectful. We are a team. We don't need to do that. We have got to be role models and should not make such gesticulations."

Right. And I suppose physically attacking your teammates in the middle of a match is a much better example to set as a role model.

Arjen Robben: Exactly like Wayne Brady.
