Arjen Robben: Unhappy with his 10-minute cameo

Robben came off the bench to score the second goal in a 2-0 win over Wolfsburg which extended Bayern's lead at the top of the Bundesliga to 18 points, yet he was nevertheless unhappy with his 10-minute cameo appearance.

"I scored a goal and that was it," he told reporters at the VW-Arena.

"The goal was nice, but nothing else is nice.

"I'm not happy. I always want to give my all for the team, but it was a short time again."

Robben hopes coach Jupp Heynckes' decision to leave him on the bench was made in view of the trip to London on Tuesday.

"I hope that I play," he added. "But then I've had this hope many times before.

"I desperately want to play because these are the top games and I don't see any reason why I shouldn't play.

"I don't want to say too much about it. The coach knows what I think, but I am a professional and we need peace and quiet and I will discuss all the rest internally."

That decision now lies with Heynckes, who as well as recognising an argument to field Robben, must also find a reason to leave the likes of Thomas Muller or Franck Ribery out.

"You all saw the way he played - not only did he score, but he worked like he has never worked before in his career," said the Bayern coach.

"What more can a coach want? It's normal that those who aren't playing are disappointed and Arjen is a man who shows that, but I don't have any problem with that."
