Arjen Robben: Exit talk rejected

Bayern Munich president Uli Hoeness has rubbished claims by his club's former coach Ottmar Hitzfeld that Arjen Robben could be one of three high-profile players to leave the club in the summer.

Hitzfeld, who was the last coach to lead Bayern Munich to the Champions League title in 2001, suggested that Robben, Thomas Muller and Toni Kroos may not feature in a side which will be coached by Pep Guardiola.

The Dutchman, according to Hitzfeld, is the most likely of the trio to pack his bags and leave before Guardiola arrives, but Hoeness has dismissed the notion.

"I really can't say how Ottmar Hitzfeld can have such thoughts," said Hoeness to the TZ newspaper.

Robben has also dismissed the suggestions he will look to leave the club, even though he has been in and out of the starting XI this season.

"I think it's a joke, people outside of the club don't know the plans," he told the Bild newspaper.

"I still have two years on my contract and we have a new era beginning next season and I'm looking forward to it."

terling needs to be told though that upon entering the Arsenal squad he will re-enact the final scene from Highlander where he will be thrown around a warehouse by cartoon dragons and then be a mere mortal that will only ever spend three to four weeks a season playing football and the rest on the physio's bed. There can be only one.....player available at The Emirates.

Arsenal interest in Sterling

he game changed in our favour when Carrick came on. We were able to play further up the pitch due to having a player who can give and go with the ball and keep possession. Yet barkley made some runs and Townsend scored a good goal but carrick's inclusion and chiellini's withdrawal made the biggest difference to the flow of the game

o, you've not silenced anyone Andros, i'm afraid. We know you can score a great goal, and it's really handy to have your direct running and willingness to shoot on the bench. But until you can do the other things expected of a winger (beat the man, put a decent cross in, stay wide etc) then you can't expect more than a regular cameo. Wonderful goal though, what a hit! No wonder Buffon wanted the shirt.
