Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk has strongly criticised the "scandalous" treatment in Germany of Arjen Robben, during the Oranje's friendly match against his club Bayern Munich.

“It’s scandalous the way in which Arjen was treated on Tuesday in Munich. Arjen was really down about it but I hope that he will emerge stronger from the experience,” van Marwijk told the Dutch news agency ANP.

Robben, who missed an extra-time penalty during their Champions League final loss to Chelsea on Saturday when the score was 1-1, was repeatedly booed by a section of the 33,000 fans who came to see the match.
