It's official: Arjen Robben will stay at FC Bayern for at least another season. Two days ahead of the DFB Cup final against Eintracht Frankfurt, the 34-year-old Dutchman signed a new contract with the German record champions to 30 June 2019.

Robben joined FCB in August 2009 from Spanish record champions Real Madrid and since then he has won the German league title seven times and the DFB Cup four times. Robben secured his place in the history books in 2013 when he scored the winner against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final at Wembley Stadium.

“Basically, I’d already like to get started on the new season, to be honest. It was really, really painful, it really did hurt and still hurts now, that I had to go off in the Champions League semi-final and missed the second leg. It hurts. So next season I’ll once again give everything I’ve got so we have a good season, and hopefully I can be an important part of the team.”
