The return of Arjen Robben to full fitness could inspire Bayern Munich to both Bundesliga and
Champions league success this season.
Though the injury prone Dutch star missed the start of the Bundesliga season, his return has made Bayern Munich a hard team to beat either at their home base “Allianz Arena” or away.
Robben’s performance shown in the Bundesliga has proven his world class quality. You talk of players being irreplaceable at their clubs, and former Chelsea man is among them. These are
players who can make the difference for their teams.
Players like Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo are also considered to be in the same class.
Messi has single handedly won games and Ronaldo is making a difference at Real Madrid ever
since he arrived.
Based on the achievements at club football, Messi still considered as the best player in the world and to me Robben comes second. And perhaps Ronaldo comes in third place.
Messi has won trophies at Barcelona, and Robben is achieving the same at Bayern Munich. Robben was fully behind Bayern domestic double success last season and inspired the Bavalian club to last season’s Champions league final, which they lost to Jose Mourinho-led Inter Milan.
It is clear that Robben is currently making a difference in Bayern since his return from the injury he sustained while playing for his country at the 2010 World Cup in South Africa.
Since his return in mid January, Bayern has not dropped even a single point and was the man of the match during his team Champions League encounter at San Siro in the mid-week.
He’s got so much quality. He’s fast, great technique, and always interesting against two or three opponents. In addition, he is also very dangerous in front of goal.
Very few players are capable of beating more than two or three opponents. Only Messi and Robben
have on several occasions managed to finish this task.
Last season, Robben scored spectacular goals against Fiorentina, Manchester united and Lyon.
His crashing shot on Tuesday this week that world class goal keeper in Julio Ceasar could not purred before Gomez tapped in for Bayern Munich winner show the magnificence of the Dutchman’s
Bayern’s win at San Siro has made life hard for Inter Milan to qualify for the quarter finals
of the 2010/2011 champions league.
Only few teams can afford over turning the defeat at Allianz Arena, only Barcelona has players
who can go to Munich and pick a favorable result with its world class stars like Messi, Iniesta
With the now famous “Robbery” partnership if wingers Robben and Ribery fit, they makes Bayern a
very hard team to beat.
Currently Bayern is having one of the top attacking forces in Europe who can easily make and
produce goals. Thomas Muller and Mario Gomez are currently working very well with two wingers.
Muller was the 2010 World Cup golden boot winner and Gomez is one of the hottest strikers at
At 23 years old, Gomez has already registered 27 goals this season. He is the Bundesliga top scorer and leads the Champions League top scorer’s chat alongside Chelsea’s Nicolas Anelka with 7 goals.
