Robben: My Best Is Yet To Come
Dutch international Arjen Robben left Real Madrid in order to join Bayern Munich back in August, and though the tricky winger has impressed at his new club, he has made it clear that he is still improving.
“I can get a great deal better because I know I’m not yet in peak physical condition,” he told the club’s official website. “I am enjoying my football again – I know I will never be asked to forego my attacking instincts. It matters a lot to me, and that’s why I decided to come here.
“I’m playing every game, and that’s important in helping me pick up my rhythm. I’ve played 90, 80 and then 90 minutes here, three games in seven days, and that’s a big difference compared to my time at Real.
“But I’m noticing just how much I’m playing. I’m very tired. But that’s what you need as a player – matches and rhythm – and the more you play, the fewer injuries you pick up.
“Franck Ribery and I are already starting to build a good relationship on the field. Franck will get better once he’s over his physical problems. We can both improve. I hope we end up forming a productive pairing. I’m really happy to be playing with him.”
