Robben Happy To Ditch Loser Tag

Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben is relieved to ditch the loser tag after they claimed the UEFA Champions League title on Saturday night.

The Dutchman popped up to score the winner in the 89th minute as they beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 and Robben admits that it is hard to describe the feeling of winning.

"It was a special feeling," Robben told reporters. "I didn't want to be remembered in my career as a loser.

"It's harsh to say but every time in second place is not what you want. It was so important to win the trophy this time. We needed to do it and we deserved to do it.

"(Being a Champions League winner) is difficult to describe in words. There are so many emotions going through your head. It's such a special feeling. I have waited so long and it means so much for the club. For the last four years we have been in the final three times and now we have the trophy. It's amazing."

Regarding his goal, he added, "I didn't even know what time it was when I scored the goal. It went in and then I looked up and I saw it said 89 minutes and I thought 'wow, it can be the end'. It was a great feeling I can tell you.

"I don't know how many times I have dreamed about doing that. We all felt this was the night that we were going to do it. There's no doubt that this is the best night of my career. Absolutely."
