Leagues News

Arjen Robben has officially signed a new one-year contract extension with Bayern Munich after winning his seventh Bundesliga crown with the club

The Dutch winger joined the Bavarians in 2009 from Real Madrid and has since won an impressive 14 trophies in his nine years at Munich.

Robben follows teammate Franck Ribery in signing on at Bayern and will now compete in his 10th season with the Bundesliga champions.

“It was really, really painful, it really did hurt and still hurts now, that I had to go off in the Champions League semifinal and missed the second leg. It hurts,” Robben told the club website.

“Basically, I’d already like to get started on the new season, to be honest. So next season I’ll once again give everything I’ve got so we have a good season, and hopefully, I can be an important part of the team.”

Currently the 34-year-old is out with a muscle injury that he sustained in the opening five minutes of Bayern’s Champions League semi-final first-leg defeat to Real Madrid on April 25.

Robben has scored 138 goals in his 289 appearances for Bayern and famously scored the winning goal in the 2013 Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund.
