Final Star Robben Eyes Blues Showdown

Next season’s elite European football season looks set to start off with a mouth-watering showdown.

Jose Mourinho is expected to be announced as Chelsea manager soon. That means The Special One will lead the Europa League champions in the Uefa Super Cup against Champions League winners, Bayern Munich, managed by his old nemesis, Pep Guardiola.

Mou won’t be the only personality involved in the Super Cup making a reunion with familiar faces.

Arjen Robben- Bayern’s star of their Wembley triumph with an assist and the winning goal against Borussia Dortmund- used to play for Chelsea.

The Dutchman says that he is licking his lips at the prospect of playing games like the Super Cup and the Fifa Club World Cup as a European club champion.

And he says that he has already received messages of congratulations from his old Chelsea pals, John Terry and Frank Lampard.

"I've already had some texts from JT and Lamps," Robben said at the weekend, as he basked in his moment of glory.

"We've got that match, the Fifa Club World Cup, all those games to look forward to,” he added.

“But we have sent a message to Europe this season. The way we won this competition, especially the quarters and semi-finals by beating Juventus and Barcelona, scoring 11 times and not conceding once, that is unbelievable.

"Let's see what the future brings. I'm really proud to be a part of this team, and I have two years left on my contract here. I'm very happy at this club, and I always have been. We'll let other teams think about how they catch us but, for now, we just enjoy the moment and celebrate."

Meanwhile, Robben has called his star showing at Wembley “the biggest night” of his life, and says that he is now “done at club level.”

"That is the best thing, the nicest thing about football. If you are down, going through those tough moments, you can still come back,” he said, referring to last season’s Champions League final defeat to Chelsea.

“The biggest one was losing the Champions League final in your own stadium, and for the second time, so it is sweet to come back and win it. This is the biggest one, the biggest night of my life for sure, without a doubt.

“We had spoken about this final for so long, people constantly asking me the question: 'Is this the time you finally win it?' And now I'm done at club level. This is the highest you can achieve. I've won titles in four countries now, and cups, but in the end it is all about the Champions League.”
