The Dutch winger was less than amused at being taken off against Borussia Monchengladbach, but his team-mates found the situation funny

Arjen Robben may be 33 years old, but that does not mean that the Bayern Munich winger is too old to throw a tantrum.

The Dutchman proved that with his show of petulance after being withdrawn in a meeting with Borussia Monchengladbach on Sunday.

There were less than five minutes remaining in the game when Carlo Ancelotti decided to replace Robben with Renato Sanches.

Despite the points being in the bag for Bayern, the former Chelsea and Real Madrid forward was less than amused at being prevented from seeing out the 90 minutes.

His childish strop was, however, welcomed by his team-mates, with his theatrics sparking laughter among those he was forced to join on the bench.

While Xabi Alonso, Jerome Boateng and Franck Ribery saw the funny side, Robben took to throwing his water bottle to the ground.

His antics could be viewed in a number of ways, but Ancelotti insists he considers the tantrum to be a positive.

The Bayern boss told reporters: "I was never happy when I got substituted either when I still played.

"I do not have any problem with his reaction."

That is just as well, because Robben is unlikely to live the incident down any time soon.
