FCB and Netherlands star Arjen Robben has committed his immediate future to Bayern for at least the next three seasons. On Thursday 3 May 2012, the 28-year-old inked a two-year extension to his current contract, keeping him with Germany's biggest club until 30 June 2015.
“We're extremely pleased that we've extended Arjen's contract a year before its expiry by two further years until 2015," commented FC Bayern Munich AG chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. “Arjen is a very important player for FC Bayern, and also a guarantee of the club’s continuing success in the future."
“I've always emphasised that I feel very, very settled in Munich and at FC Bayern," commented Robben, “this is the reason I'm glad to extend my contract ahead of its expiry. FC Bayern is like a family to me. Two of my three children were born in Munich, and my family and I feel at home here. This contract extension is also the right decision for me from a sporting perspective. We have a magnificent team, and I'm certain we'll enjoy the maximum possible footballing success in the years to come."
