Concern over Robben

Star to undergo MRI scan on injured knee

Concern descended over the Bayern camp on Wednesday night over a potentially long lay-off for Arjen Robben. The Netherlands star twisted a knee shortly before half-time in the goalless Champions League stalemate at home to Juventus and was replaced for the remainder of the match by Croatia hitman Ivica Olic.

“I think it’s a bad one. We’ll have a diagnosis tomorrow. But if a player tells me it’s serious, I always think it must be serious,” a visibly worried FCB boss Louis van Gaal stated.

Bayern chief medical officer Dr Hans-Wilhelm Müller-Wohlfahrt will examine Robben on Thursday morning. “I’m going to wait for the results of the MRI scan,” Müller-Wohlfahrt said after the final whistle, declining to issue an initial diagnosis so soon after the match.
