Real Madrid forward Cristiano Ronaldo has been named world footballer of the year after winning the Ballon d’Or for the second year in a row. The Portugal captain beat Barcelona forward Lionel Messi and Bayern Munich goalkeeper Manuel Neuer to the award. Wolfsburg and Germany midfielder Nadine Kessler was named women’s player of the year, while Colombia’s James Rodriguez won goal of the year. The three candidates for the Ballon d’Or were all picked in the team of the year, along with defenders Phillip Lahm, David Luiz, Thiago Silva and Sergio Ramos, midfielders Andres Iniesta, Toni Kroos and Angel Di Maria and forward Arjen Robben. Meanwhile, Germany manager Joachim Low was named FIFA Coach of the Year at the ceremony. A huge favourite for the award, Low led Germany to the World Cup after a 1-0 victory over Argentina in the final. Before that came an unforgettable demolition of Brazil in the semi-finals, when Die Mannschaft hit seven past the hosts. Low said: “It is the icing on the cake, the ca ...
Hard Tackle Bayern Munich winger Franck Ribery believes either Manuel Neuer or Arjen Robben deserve to win the 2014 FIFA Ballon d'Or - but fears 'politics' could work against them. Bayern goalkeeper Neuer, widely regarded as the best number one in the world, helped Germany win the World Cup, while Holland forward Robben enjoyed an excellent campaign with club and country. Both men are on the 23-strong shortlist for the award, but Cristiano Ronaldo is the favourite to win for a second straight year after leading Real Madrid to Champions League success. Question Do you agree that the awarding of the Ballon d'Or is a question of "politics" rather than sporting achievements?
ROBBEN : THERE IS NO CHANCE I WILL LEAVE BAYERN Arjen Robben has waxed lyrical about life at Bayern Munich and insists he is not considering a move away from the Bavarian giants. The Netherlands international moved to Bayern from Real Madrid in 2009 and has enjoyed a trophy-laden stint in Germany. Robben has picked up three Bundesliga titles, as well as winning the Uefa Champions League in 2013, scoring the all- important goal in the 2-1 final victory over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley. There was talk in the close-season that Robben would move to Manchester United to be reunited with Louis Van Gaal - who he worked under at Bayern and with the national team - but the 30-year-old's glowing description of life in Munich means any such move in the future seems unlikely. "I am enjoying it so much over here," he told The Telegraph. "It is the perfect club with the perfect manager for me. My family is happy, we have lived here for five years and I am exactly at the place I want to be. "It cannot be better than it ...
Pep Guardiola has taunted Manchester United by claiming none of his Bayern Munich players wanted to join them this summer. United made approaches for Bastian Schweinsteiger, Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller, while Toni Kroos opted to join Real Madrid. Although United spent £151.3million on six players this summer, including a British record £59.7m on Angel Di Maria, Guardiola said they could not have afforded his stars - even if they had wanted to move to Old Trafford. "They don't have enough money," said Guardiola. "I saw they spent this kind of [big] money. "It's good for my friend Louis [Van Gaal]. I know all the players the clubs want, it just depends on the player. "If the player wants to stay, they stay. Manchester United wants these kind of players, but they want to stay and we are happy to be here." Guardiola also said United's absence from this season's Champions League, for the first time in 19 years, was a lesson to all big clubs of what can happen if they do not perform. "It’s a good lesson ...
"When he came to Real Madrid with Arjen Robben he thought he would be a good colleague for him in the team but then Robben was sold. Two years ago it was Gonzalo Higuain sold and he didn't like that. Last year he thought it was a mistake to let Mesut Ozil leave and the last straw was selling Xabi Alonso and Angel Di Maria this summer." Who are they talking about?
FC Bayern München pair Manuel Neuer & Arjen Robben feature alongside Real Madrid C.F. forward Cristiano Ronaldo in this video of the nominees ... Who will be crowned UEFA Best Player in Europe?
Lionel Messi misses out as Bayern dominate European Player of the Year voting The shift in power within European football was underlined yesterday when two Bayern Munich players were among the nominees to be named the continent's top-three players, with Lionel Messi left out for the first time in eight years. Manuel Neuer, the Bayern goalkeeper, and his team-mate, winger Arjen Robben, were yesterday named by Uefa on the shortlist for European Footballer of the Year, alongside Cristiano Ronaldo of Real Madrid. Four-time winner Messi - who was second last year behind Bayern's Frank Ribery - did not make the cut from the final 10. The omission of the Argentine reflected the fact that Barcelona did not win either a Spanish or European honour last season, although the forward did lead his national side to the World Cup Final. However, the fact that Neuer was one of three German players listed in the top five - Bayern team-mates Thomas Mueller and Philipp Lahm were the others - underlines the scale of the task ...
Barcelona star Lionel Messi is one of 10 players who have been nominated for the Best Player in Europe award after guiding Argentina to the final of the World Cup. The prolific attacker was controversially handed the World Cup Golden Ball earlier this month ahead of Bayern Munich duo Thomas Muller (Germany) and Arjen Robben (Netherlands) and is now in the frame to bag yet another prestigious individual award. The 10-man shortlist for the prize is dominated by Bayern Munich players, with Philipp Lahm and Manuel Neuer accompanying the aforementioned Muller and Robben. Real Madrid have two representatives on the list in Portugal attacker Cristiano Ronaldo and Argentina's Angel Di Maria, while Colombia star James Rodriguez is the only candidate from Ligue 1. Luis Suarez and Diego Costa, who both switched clubs this summer, complete the shortlist. Sergio Ramos, Thibaut Courtois, Zlatan Ibrahimovic, Andrea Pirlo and Yaya Toure all narrowly missed out and occupy places 11 to 15. A jury of journalists from each o ...
Germany’s star midfielder Toni Kroos was statistically the Best Player in the tournament, according to the Castrol Index, the FIFA approved ranking of World Cup players. The Bayern Munich play-maker, expected to complete a move to Real Madrid this summer, achieved a stunning score of 9.79 out of 10 for his performances in Brazil. The criteria for the score includes passes, tackles, ground covered and, of course, goals. The results make for interesting reading. Here are the top ten, with perhaps the most notable omissions being golden ball winner Lionel Messi, Germany’s captain Philipp Lahm and golden boot winner James Rodriguez. Toni Kroos (9.79) – the Germany pass master excelled, scoring twice in the 7-1 semi-final victory over Brazil and displaying his creative brilliance throughout the tournament. Arjen Robben (9.74) – Kroos’ Bayern team-mate enjoyed an excellent tournament for Holland, sometimes playing as a centre forward as well as his traditional wide berth and scoring three times. Stefa ...

Spain's demise in sync with Barcelona's fall from grace The Catalan giants' suffered their worst campaign since 2008 - and their rise and subsequent fall in that period has coincided perfectly with that of the national side. It is hardly a coincidence. Spain's spectacular success between 2008 and 2012 runs concurrently with the heady heights of Pep Guardiola's brilliant Barcelona. So perhaps it should come as little surprise that, as the Catalan club have fallen into decline of late, so too have La Roja. Friday's shocking 5-1 defeat to Netherlands in Salvador was reminiscent of Barca's 4-0 loss to Bayern Munich in the Champions League last season. Nobody had seen it coming - not then and not now. There is no scapegoating of the Barca contingent taking place; many of Spain's stars were at fault. Sergio Ramos was well beaten for pace by Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben and proved to be some distance from the fine form he has shown for Real Madrid in recent months, Iker Casillas was at fault for one and per ...

Del Bosque: Casillas not to blame Spain manager Vicente Del Bosque defended goalkeeper Iker Casillas on Saturday as the inquest into the FIFA World Cup™ holders' 5-1 drubbing by the Netherlands continued. The Dutch claimed emphatic revenge in Salvador for their defeat to Spain in the 2010 World Cup Final in South Africa with Robin Van Persie and Arjen Robben both claiming two goals each on Friday. Louis Van Gaal's side scored four second-half goals without reply in their opening Group B match which leaves Spain needing to beat both Chile and Australia to keep alive dreams of defending the title. The 33-year-old Casillas was caught off his line by Van Persie's looping header 90 seconds from the break to equalise, after Xabi Alonso had converted a first-half penalty to give Spain the lead. And Van Persie again got the better of the Real Madrid goalkeeper when he won a sprint to the ball to claim his second goal and Netherland's fourth on 72 minutes. I don't find the words to explain it. Vicente Del Bosque ...
Manchester United face a losing battle to beat Real Madrid to the signing of Bayern Munich star Toni Kroos. According to reports in Spanish newspaper El Confidencial incoming United boss Van Gaal telephoned Kroos in an attempt to persuade him to join the Old Trafford side instead of Real Madrid. The news comes in the wake of several reports that have claimed Real Madrid now lead the race to sign the Germany international. Bayern Munich reportedly would prefer to do a deal with Real Madrid over United, having worked with them closely before on several big transfer deals - including Arjen Robben's move. Real Madrid could also use Sami Khedira as a makeweight in any deal to bring Kroos to the Bernabeu. Central midfield is a position Carlo Ancelotti has targeted as one to strengthen this summer. Asier Illarramendi has not worked out so far, and Xabi Alonso is getting any younger. The reigning Champions League winners have been linked with Kroos and Chelsea's Ramires, as well as Juventus duo Paul Pogba and Art ...

SPORTS UPDATE WITH EMMAH ATAI : Arsene Wenger has been tipped to turn his side back into title contenders with a spending spree this summer. Chairman Sir Chips Keswick is adamant the Frenchman will have Arsenal challenging at the top next season, with many players already on the radar. Mario Mandzukic and Real Sociedad duo Antoine Griezmann and Carlos Vela have all been linked, while right-back Serge Aurier looks set to be Bacary Sagna's replacement at the Emirates. Manchester City midfielder Yaya Toure is "very upset" and wants a "job for life", according to his agent. Dimitri Seluk says the 31-year-old midfielder wants the same club "for as long as possible" and similar treatment to Zidane at Real Madrid. "The contract is OK," says Seluk. "For us, the most important is attention from the club to whom Yaya gives a lot."

Louis Van Gaal is the likely successor to the Old Trafford throne, and the links to big-name signings are already coming in thick and fast. According to Jamie Jackson of The Guardian, the Dutchman has handed United’s executive vice-chairman Ed Woodward a list of players he would like to bring to Manchester if he takes up the reins this summer. Heading the list to join the revolution is Van Gaal’s fellow countryman Arjen Robben, who has evolved into one of the world’s best attacking players since joining Bayern Munich from Real Madrid in 2009. Luring him away from the Allianz Arena will take a lot, particularly with Champions League football not on the agenda at Old Trafford, but a fee of £25 million and a substantial increase on his £160,000-per-week salary may just work, per Simon Osborn of the Metro.
Louis Van Gaal Wants to Make Arjen Robben His First Manchester United Signing By Jack Kenmare 16 May 2014 22K58 Louis Van Gaal has told Manchester United he wants to make fellow Dutchman Arjen Robben his first signing if he takes over at Old Trafford, for a fee of around £25m. The Metro has suggested that the Holland boss is expected to sign a three-year-deal to replace David Moyes in Manchester within the next week and has already planned his future aquuisitions at the club. Van Gaal has reportedly handed a list of transfer targets to United’s executive chairman Ed Woodward, including big names such as Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben at the top of his wishlist. Following Bayern Munich's calamitous Champions League exit to Real Madrid last month, the Bundesliga champions may look to offload Robben in a bid to strengthen their side. The potential Manchester United manager has had previous experience managing Robben in the Dutch national side and believes he can persuade the German Champions to part with ...
Former Chelsea and current Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben is a transfer priority for Louis Van Gaal when he becomes Manchester United manager, reports the Guardian. The Dutchman has sent a wish list of signings to the Red Devils chief executive Ed Woodward and his fellow countryman features prominently. Van Gaal knows Robben well having managed the 30-year-old in the national team since 2012 and was also the man who brought the attacking midfielder to Bayern from Real Madrid back in 2009 for £22m. The boss has identified that creativity in the middle is a real issue for United currently, with the likes of Luis Nani and Ashley Young failing to impress. In Robben the 2013 Premier League champions would be able to rely upon a player who has been recognised as one of the best in the world over the last decade, winning trophies in England, Spain , Germany and his native Netherlands. The Dutch international is particularly well known to Blues fans having spent three years at Stamford Bridge between 2004 and ...

Often, they were not even named in the matchday squad and Ribery feels he was unable to produce his best form because of this, with Bayern crashing out of the Champions League to Real Madrid at the semifinal stage. "Sometimes you were playing, sometimes you were on the bench and sometimes you were just left at home,'' he said on kicker.de. "That was a new situation for all of us. Personally, I need to be playing games. I need five or six games before maybe taking a break, but not after jus ...

Thursday night, May 1, 2014 at 10:06 p.m. Correction: Real Madrid 4, Bayern Munich 0. Sorry for giving Arjen Robben and Frank Ribery of Bayern too much credit on the scorecard, when, in fact, both went scoreless. Any new voting for Ribery for world's Best Player? And Keith, was it not Iker Casillas in nets for Real Madrid who gave us a clean sheet versus the world's supposed best? See the photo-- Casillas can still play with the best of them, and I believe we will see Casillas again in nets for Spain come the World Cup in June as Spain's longtime manager knows well Casillas' quality.
Champions League semifinal - Bayern Munich vs Real Madrid at Allianz Arena on 30 April 2014. Match starts at 12:30 am India time. It's the clash between two of the biggest spenders in club football. Real Madrid are worth 425 millions and Bayern are worth 314 million pounds in player values. Carlo Ancelotti and Pep Guardiola have been good with their respective teams but RM stands a better chance after the 1-0 lead in the first leg. Bayern were tactically naive in the first leg where RM played without Gareth Bale and CR without full fitness. Will the Bavarians get the two required goals and prevent RM from scoring that 1 away goal? Real Madrid: Iker Casillas; Marcelo, Sergio Ramos, Pepe, Dani Carvajal; Ángel di María, Xabi Alonso, Luka Modrić; Cristiano Ronaldo, Karim Benzema, Gareth Bale. Bayern Munich: Manuel Neuer; David Alaba, Dante, Jerome Boateng, Philipp Lahm; Javi Martínez; Franck Ribéry, Bastian Schweinsteiger, Toni Kroos, Arjen Robben; Mario Mandžukić.

Five or 10 minutes from the end of the game, a few of Ozil's teammates were doing much more than shaking their heads. In one especially notable moment, Mathieu Flamini grabbed the German, shoved and shouted at him in what seemed fairly furious terms. Ozil, at that point, was barely at the races. If there have been fair questions about his physical condition the past few weeks, there could be no disputing he was psychologically out of the game at that point. On several occasions, and especially the moments when a playmaking Arjen Robben moved past Ozil with ease, it was remarkable to think that this was the star Real Madrid felt was a fine upgrade a year after the Dutch forward was sold from the Bernabeu. - Miguel Rob Delaney

Can Cristiano Ronaldo, Franck Ribéry or Arjen Robben stop the Barcelona maestro taking his fifth successive Fifa world player of the year award? It has become as established a January fixture as the sales and midwinter sludge: the sight of Lionel Messi smiling awkwardly into dancing flashbulbs as he hoists up a golden football the size of his skull. But this year the battle for Fifa's Ballon d'Or is laced with intrigue. An undisputed champion could yet be toppled. Messi has been excellent in 2013, but not to the extent he was between 2009 and 2012 when he was named the world's Best Player four years in a row. Cristiano Ronaldo has been exceptional in an unexceptional year for Real Madrid. And while Bayern Munich are the world's best team, they have no standout star: might votes for their players be split between the club's six contenders on Fifa's shortlist? Only Fifa, incidentally, could describe the 23 nominees for this year's Ballon d'Or as a "shortlist" – and the whims and machinations of its judgi ...
WEEKEND REVIEW It was a mixed weekend for our TeamTruSox, and big name players, over the weekend. There was a win and a goal in Almeria for Gareth Bale as Real Madrid ran riot with a 5-0 victory. Bale scored Real's third goal, after Ronaldo and Benzema put them in front comfortably. The hot favourite to win the Ballon d'Or, Ronaldo, was brought off just after half-time after sustaining an injury, which is believed to not be serious. Bale played the full 90 minutes, and appears to be coming to something close to his best following his move to Spain. Jerome Boateng's Bayern Munich moved seven points clear of Borussia Dortmund with a convincing 3-0 win over their rivals. It was Dortmund old-boy Mario Gotze who made the difference for Bayern, scoring ten minutes after coming on, with Arjen Robben and Thomas Muller sealing the game late on. Liverpool came out of the Merseyside derby with a share of the spoils following a thrilling 3-all draw with Everton. It was S&S that rescued Liverpool with Sturridge coming ...

Bayern leave City chasing shadows 03 October By Justin Palmer London - Holders Bayern Munich left Champions League aspirants Manchester City chasing shadows with a 3-1 win on Wednesday to serve notice Pep Guardiola will leave no stone unturned to re-establish their continental dominance. Franck Ribery, Thomas Mueller and Arjen Robben scored as Bayern left shellshocked City chasing shadows for much of a one-sided Group D encounter that ended the Premier League team's five-year unbeaten run at home in Europe. Cristiano Ronaldo's hot form continued with a double in Real Madrid's 4-0 rout of FC Copenhagen but he was not the only revered striker among the goals with Zlatan Ibrahimovic also netting twice as Paris St Germain brushed aside Benfica 3-0. Both, though, were outshone by Greece forward Kostas Mitroglou who grabbed a hat-trick in Olympiakos Piraeus's 3-0 romp at Anderlecht.

Bayern Munich to offer their star in exchange for Suarez Bayern Munich will offer Arjen Robben to Liverpool in exchange for Luis Suarez. The Champions League winners are willing to do anything to gain the services of the Kop star, according to sources on the continent. Suarez has admitted he wants to leave Anfield but Liverpool won't entertain offers for the Uruguayan. But Bayern are looking to test their resolve by tabling a bit that would see 29-year-old Robben move the opposite way.

Real Madrid are also in for the controversial hit-man, who will miss the first six games of next season through suspension. The Kop idol bit Chelsea defender Branislav Ivanvic and is currently serving a 10-game ban.

REAL PRESIDENT'S COMPREHENSIVE REVIEW OF CURRENT ISSUES Florentino: "If I had the chance, of course I would try to sign Messi" In an interview on 'Cadena Ser' radio, Florentino Pérez spoke openly about various topics related to Real Madrid. The Real President defended José Mourinho, but also Vicente Del Bosque and Iker Casillas. Pérez ambiguously spoke about Jürgen Klopp and revealed what would seem to be an unrealistic dream, he would love to sign Leo Messi. Pérez also admitted to having tried to capture Neymar, but the Brazilian would have cost Real Madrid an incredible €150 million. - On Mourinho: "I don't think many have been against Mourinho. Since 2010, the squad has been the most united I've ever seen it. I don't think Real Madrid's image has been tarnished. When he made a mistake, he said sorry. Everyone has the right to make a mistake". - On Neymar: "He's a fantastic player, but signing him would have broken the ecosystem of the club. He would have cost us €150 million". - On Casillas: " ...
SPORT NEWS:Champions League final: German superiority over Premier League. Bayern Munich's massed ranks of red celebrated avoiding the fate of losing their third successive Champions League final with a rousing rendition of an old England classic. The Euro 96 anthem "Football's Coming Home" was one of the souvenirs Germany took away with them - as well as the trophy - in that memorable summer. And it was back again on another sunny Wembley night of vindication for Bayern, match-winner Arjen Robben and that country's great coaching statesman Jupp Heynckes. The facts are bare. Bayern Munich cleansed the wounds of Champions League final defeats to Inter Milan in 2010 and, in their own imposing Allianz Arena to Chelsea in 2012, with a 2-1 victory over Bundesliga rivals Borussia Dortmund. It gave the Bavarian giants, the beast that once spawned the nickname "FC Hollywood", a fifth win in this tournament. They are level with Liverpool and only Real Madrid and AC Milan are above them. Scratch underneath those st ...
GOD ZEGENE ARJEEN ROBBEN.. :D Borussia Dortmund v Bayern Munich: Arjen Robben still splits opinions Robben looks likely to leave Bayern after the final but would love to sign off with victory to make amends for last year’s loss.. It was the kind of advert to make you look twice. Firstly, because the footballers were wearing leather shorts and drinking beer. Secondly, because among those doing the drinking was Arjen Robben. The image Robben has in Munich is of a man apart, who, according to Bayern’s great grey eminence Franz Beckenbauer, glories in his own selfishness. Before last year’s European Cup final there were stories of on-field spats with Thomas Müller and of Franck Ribéry punching him in the dressing-room after the semi-final against Real Madrid. He was accused of not being a team player, of going over to the stands to celebrate his goals with his wife, Bernadien, rather than with the rest of the squad. During Bayern Munich’s press day last week prior to today’s Champions League final ...
News Update On Tonight UEFA CL Borussia Dortmund - Mario Götze has been ruled out of the final against his future employers with the injury that he picked up in the semi final second leg against Real Madrid. - Jurgen Klopp is likely to field the same starting eleven that played Hoffenheim last weekend, even if they did succumb to a loss against lowly Hoffenheim. - That will mean Marco Reus plays in a central role behind lone striker Robert Lewandowski, with Kevin Grosskreutz lining upon the left. Klopp has also recently tried out Ilkay Gundogan in a more attack-minded role but it hasn't been all that successful, so he is unlikely to go with it again. Bayern Munich - Toni Kroos will not make it back in time to play at Wembley, but Arjen Robben has been in fantastic form of late and he will keep his place on the right, with Thomas Müller again playing centrally. - There are unlikely to be any surprises in Jupp Heynckes' lineup, with the usual team having hit 4 past Gladbach last weekend. - Holger Badstub ...
Cristiano Ronaldo will almost certainly leave Real Madrid before his contract expires in 2015, and despite his apparent differences with José Mourinho the pair could join forces at Chelsea. Madrid's former president and rent-a-quote extraordinaire Roman Calderón suggested Ronaldo's relationship with current president Florentino Pérez is strained because he inherited him, which may lead to the Portuguese's departure. "He did the same with Arjen Robben and Wesley Sneijder. It was unbelievable that when he came he decided to give them away. Then, the next season, they were playing in the Champions League, in the Bernabeu, against Real Madrid for their respective new clubs." One problem, there. Pérez was president when Ronaldo signed. The modest Calderón has always claimed he agreed the deal to bring Ronaldo to Madrid from Manchester United, only he had been ousted when the Portuguese joined in 2009, so officially, Pérez gets the credit. "No matter what Ramon tells you, it was Florentino who brought you ...

Schuster: Chelsea set a terrible footballing example The German trainer has attacked the Premier League club for their negative attitude last term, while also taking time to discuss Arjen Robben as well as Real Madrid's youth academy Former Real Madrid coach Bernd Schuster has declared himself “fed up” with the negative tactics employed by visiting sides when they play Barcelona in the wake of the Catalans' hard-fought 2-1 Champions Leaguewin over Celtic on Tuesday, stressing that Chelsea set a bad example last season. The German says he does not like seeing teams set up to just defend when they line up against the Spanish giants, like the Blues did in the semi-finals of last year's edition of the Champions League. “I’m fed up of seeing these type of matches,”said Schuster to ABC . “There shouldn’t be teams like [Celtic] in the Champions League. “We saw it last year with Chelsea. It was a very bad example for football and it is regrettable that they became champions. “You see Celtic defe ...

Robben: Euro 2012 was a complete disaster Bayern Munich attacker Arjen Robben has blasted Netherlands' European Championship performance after Bert van Marwijk's side failed to progress from the group stage of Euro 2012. The Former Real Madrid player started each of Netherlands' group match defeats against Denmark, Germany and Portugal, as the team were eliminated from the competition without a single point. The winger joined up with the national side for the first time following their poor performance in Poland and Ukraine, ahead of this week's friendly against Belgium, and had some strong words to say about their campaign. "The Euros were a complete disaster, just one big drama - worthless," the player told De Telegraaf. "Too many things happened that prevented us from having a good tournament. We will have to talk about the things that happened. We have to look forward, but we must not forget what happened, and where it went wrong in June." When asked what exactly went wrong in Poland and Ukraine, Robb ...

Franck Ribery has admitted that he is not the best of friends with his Bayern Munich team-mate Arjen Robben. The France international and his Dutch counterpart had to be pulled apart after an angry exchange of words at half-time during the Bavarians' Champions League semi-final first-leg clash with Real Madrid in April, and the former Galatasaray winger was reportedly fined €50,000 for striking his colleague.Ribery made a point of fist-bumping Robben after netting the winner in the Bundesliga clash with Werder Bremen the following weekend, but the 29-year-old has confessed that while the pair continue to have the utmost respect for one another, they are by no means close. "We are not the best friends in the world," the former Marseille man admitted during an interview with Kicker. "But we respect each other. We are completely different." Bayern went onto defeat Madrid in spite of Ribery and Robben's dressing-room bust-up, but Jupp Heynckes' men were ultimately left heartbroken after being beaten by Chel ...

Gullit: Cristiano Ronaldo can make the difference at Euro 2012 The Netherlands legend has tipped the Real Madrid attacker to shine at this summer's tournament, and he also has high expectations for Arjen Robben and The 27-year-old netted an impressive 46 goals in 38 La Liga appearances for Real Madrid to help the side to the Spanish league title, and Gullit will be keeping a close eye on Ronaldo this summer. "While there are many stars determined to leave a mark in Poland and Ukraine, I will be keenly following the performance of a select few in the tournament, those whose quality should determine how their respective teams perform in the competition," Gullit wrote in a column for The Times of India. "One of them would be Cristiano Ronaldo. He has come into his own under Jose Mourinho at Real Madrid and will be keen to replicate that form in the national colours. If he does so, that will make him a very dangerous customer. He is fleet-footed and has the ability to score from any position." The Euro 1988 w ...
Di Matteo even declined to reveal what Abramovich said as the pair embraced at the top of a flight of steps moments before Chelsea received the giant trophy for the first time in their history. On an atmospheric night in a wonderful stadium nicknamed "The Inflatable Boat" because of its futuristic design, Chelsea occasionally threatened to go under but eventually arrived safely at Abramovich's chosen destination. And those who have been in pretty much from the start all made defining contributions to the greatest night Chelsea have ever had. The club that is incorrectly mocked for not having history - remember they won a European trophy before even Liverpool when they beat Real Madrid to claim the Cup Winners' Cup in 1971 - had written a thrilling new chapter in their story. Drogba, the leader and talisman, wrote his name in folklore with his deeds. Goalkeeper Petr Cech has suffered all the highs and lows of Chelsea's Champions League quest and in Munich he was immense, saving Arjen Robben's penalty at th ...
there's no law against playing ugly football. Chelsea didn't travel to Munich to dazzle as Barcelona and Real Madrid surely would have done had those Spanish clubs not foundered in the semi-finals. Chelsea didn't even come here to play attacking football " as Bayern did in wave upon fruitless wave on Saturday night, with Franck Ribery and Arjen Robben double-teaming like Batman and Robin, but without the knockout punch. No, Chelsea came to right the wrong of the tear-streaked night in Moscow in 2008, when Chelsea captain John Terry slipped on the soggy turf and hit the post in the decisive penalty shootout won by Manchester United. This time, there was again the agony of penalties. Only this time, it was Bayern's Bastian Schweinsteiger who hit the post. Drogba, in what may well have been his last kick of a ball in a Chelsea shirt, then fired home the winning spot-kick

Chelsea win Champions League MUNICH, Germany (AFP) – Chelsea beat Bayern Munich 4-3 on penalties to win the Champions League on Saturday after the two sides had been locked at 1-1 at the end of extra-time. German international Thomas Mueller had headed Bayern into a deserved lead in the 83rd minute from a left wing cross before Didier Drogba levelled with a bullet header with just two minutes remaining of normal time. Drogba conceded a penalty in the third minute of extra-time for a clumsy foul on Franck Ribery, but Former Chelsea player Arjen Robben saw his penalty saved by Petr Cech in the Chelsea goal. In the shootout, Drogba was the hero when he buried the winning penalty.

Chelsea vs. Bayern Munich is no second-rate final The dream Champions League final, in pure football terms, would have been Barcelona versus Real Madrid. But the world’s two Best Players, Lionel Messi and Cristiano Ronaldo, both fluffed penalties in the semi-finals, leaving us with the thinking fan’s final, instead. Which isn’t to say that Bayern Munich against Chelsea is a dull second-best. European club football’s most coveted trophy and, in some ways, its soul and UEFA boss Michel Platini’s ambitions for the future will all be in play when the sober Bavarian and glitzy west London teams meet at the Allianz Arena in Munich. A final with the Spanish giants might have produced a better show and a bigger global television audience. But Bayern vs. Chelsea could be more significant, philosophically. Bayern touts itself as a model for the type of club Platini wants to see and is pushing for: Financially sound and adroitly managed, profitable for the past 19 years, living within its means, not behold ...

Arjen Robben has followed the example of team-mate Daniel Van Buyten by extending his contract with Uefa Champions League finalists FC Bayern München. The winger has added two more years to a deal which was due to expire at the end of next season and consequently is now tied to the Bundesliga club until June 2015. On Monday, Van Buyten prolonged his expiring terms by a further 12 months. The 28-year-old, who joined the Bavarians in 2009 from Real Madrid CF, said: "I've always emphasised that I
Robben extends Bayern deal until 2015 Arjen Robben has ended speculation about his Bayern Munich future by signing a two-year contract extension that will keep him at the club until June 2015, the Champions League finalists announced on Thursday. "We're delighted to have extended Arjen's contract until 2015," said Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge. "Arjen's contract has been extended. Arjen is a very important player and a guarantee for the club's brilliant future." Robben, 28, joined Bayern from Real Madrid in 2009 and the Dutch international winger's contract had been due to expire in June 2013. He has scored 39 goals in only 61 Bundesliga appearances for Bayern but has often been sidelined by injuries. "I've always said that I feel very good in Munich and at Bayern," said Robben. "That's why I wanted to extend my contract. This extension is also the right sporting decision. We're a great team and I'm sure we'll have great success in the years to come." Robben's future at the club had been cast into ...
Bayern Munich overcame an early setback at the Santiago Bernabeu to earn the right to play in the final as a 3-1 penalty shootout win over Real Madrid saw the German club progress. The Bavarians found themselves under the cosh straight away as Los Blancos tried to overturn the 2-1 deficit from the first leg. An early Cristiano Ronaldo brace set them on their way but Arjen Robben leveled the tie from the penalty spot just before the half-hour mark. The affair turned cagey in the second half as neither side wanted to over commit and with extra time unable to separate the pair, the match went all the way to penalties. Manuel Neuer saved shots from both Ronaldo and Kaka before Sergio Ramos skied it from 12 yards, allowing Bastian Schweinsteiger the chance to net the winning penalty. Jose Mourinho made only one change from the side that defeated Barcelona at Camp Nou at the weekend with Marcelo replacing Fabio Coentrao at left-back. Jupp Heynckes recalled eight first-team players to the starting XI who were re ...
Real Madrid are regretting they let Arjen Robben go to Bayern Munich..

Bayern came to Madrid with a 2-1 lead, but Cristiano Ronaldo looked to have put the home side on its way to the final with two early goals, but just like its Spanish rival Barcelona the evening before, Madrid faltered and Arjen Robben's 27th-minute penalty leveled the score over two legs at 3-3. In the penalty shoot-out, Manuel Neuer saved from Ronaldo and Kaka to put Bayern on course after it had scored its opening two kicks, but counterpart Iker Casillas denied Toni Kroos and Philipp Lahm to drag Madrid back into it. After Xabi Alonso scored Madrid's first, Sergio Ramos sent his shot high over the bar and SeBastian Schweinsteiger sent his effort straight down the middle to ensure four-time champions Bayern will play the final on its home ground. The final is on May 19 at the Allianz Ar ...

I'm happy and relieved that Real Madrid is shown door out of Champions League by Bayern Munich on penalty shootout.
