Time to win title now, says Robben
Arjen Robben set his sights on lifting the Champions League trophy after helping Bayern Munich complete an "amazing" 7-0 aggregate semi-final drubbing of Barcelona.
The victory saw Bayern set up a mouthwatering Wembley final against Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund on May 25 — the competition’s first all-German final — and Robben is hoping his side can go one better than they did in 2010 and last year by winning the showpiece.
The former Real Madrid winger told Sky Sports 2: “Now we’re in the final. It’s the third time in the last four years, but it’s time to win it now!
“It’s going to be a big one. Dortmund have proven over the last two-three years that they are a very good side. It’s going to be a big game again which will be decided by the small details.”
The Holland international added of their Nou Camp victory: “I think it’s a terrific performance — a little bit of history maybe.
“You’re playing against a team who have dominated Europe over the last five years and there’s so much quality in their squad, and to win 4-0 at home and 3-0 away, especially this one away in their own stadium, it’s amazing.”
Robben refused to get too carried away with their success, though. Asked if he felt Bayern were now the team to beat in Europe, he said: “I think we have to stay calm.
“At this moment we’re playing some great football. We have to enjoy this moment, just stay calm, play our football and try to improve over and over again.”
