Shearer: Wenger owes Sterling an apology.

Blackburn and Newcastle legend Alan Shearer says Arsene Wenger owes Raheem Sterling an apology after labelling the Manchester City attacker a diver following the Gunners' 3-1 defeat on Sunday.

Wenger reckons the second-half penalty awarded to City by referee Michael Oliver when Nacho Monreal challenge Sterling in the box was a wrong call and the Frenchman told BBC Sport after the clash at the Etihad: "We know that Sterling dives well, and he does that [win the penalty] very well."

But, Shearer thought otherwise and called on Wenger to apologise to the England international. Speaking on Match of the Day, he said: "I think it's totally wrong. 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."
