Bayern finally kick-started their league season on Saturday with a generally convincing 3-0 home win over champions VfL Wolfsburg. New signing Arjen Robben came on at half-time and contributed two goals on his debut. “I couldn’t have made a better start to my time here," the pacy Dutch ace declared. Coach Louis van Gaal was pleased with his men: ”I saw a very good Bayern Munich this evening."
Reaction to Bayern v Wolfsburg:
Louis van Gaal: “I saw a very good Bayern Munich this evening, against a very good team indeed, namely VfL Wolfsburg. We played well in the first half and our organisation was perfect. In the second half, the creative players scored the goals and made any number of chances on top. I’m delighted Franck Ribéry is back with us and that Arjen Robben has come to the club. We can be really thrilled with the result, but we still have to improve, and then things will really look up for us.“
Arjen Robben: “It was fantastic. I couldn’t have made a better start to my time here. I’m delighted I’ve come here. I’ve only trained with the rest of the team once, but I’m fit and the coach sent me on for the second half. That was terrific. That’s why I’ve come here. I want to win matches and trophies with the club. It’s very important to me that Franck plays here. Overall, I think it was a good team display. We controlled the game. It’s been a perfect day for me.“
