Robben Extends Bayern Contract

Dutch Bayern Munich winger, Arjen Robben, has extended his contract with the Bavarians for a further two year’s until 30 June 2017.

The 30-year-old's original contract had expired in 2015, but the treble winner has now put pen to paper.

Robben, who scored the deciding 2-1 goal in the 2013 Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund, was happy that the long negotiating process has finally come to an end.

“I’m delighted we’ve now signed the new contract and I’ll continue pursuing trophies with FC Bayern,” the Dutch international said.

“I’m now in my fifth season in Munich and there will be three more after this. There can be no better indication of how happy my family and I feel to be here and how much I enjoy playing for this club and with this team.

“I’m looking forward to the years ahead – and to plenty more trophies with FC Bayern.”

The club has also expressed its delight about the extension of their Dutch winger and released the following comments on their website.

“We’re extremely pleased Arjen has extended his contract with us until 2017,” commented FC Bayern Munich chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.

“Arjen is a magnificent player. He’s proved his worth to FC Bayern and not just in the Champions League Final at Wembley.

“Arjen is a fundamentally important member of the team and will now remain so for the years to come.”

Robben was involved in 31 goals in as many games he played this season and has won two Bundesliga titles, two German DFB Cup’s and the Champions League with the German giants since joining from Real Madrid in 2009.

If Bayern continue to keep all their stars together, can they keep on dominating European football? Have your say in the comment section below.
