'All will be fine' - Robben relaxed over contract talks

BeSoccer by BeSoccer @besoccer_com - 0 263

The Bayern Munich attacker's contract expires at the end of the season, but he insists he is focused on staying fit and remaining a key part of Carlo Ancelotti's side.

Arjen Robben says he is not worried about the lack of progress over a new contract at Bayern Munich, insisting “all will be fine”.

The Netherlands international’s contract expires at the end of the season and both parties are confident of reaching an agreement over a new deal, with talks expected to begin soon.

Robben says his father, who is his agent, is yet to have talks with Karl-Heinz Rummenigge over an extension.

“No, not yet,” he told Goal when asked if the two had discussed the topic yet. “No news. I'm really focusing on football.

“Some players say something like that maybe because they want to be diplomatic, but I would be honest and tell you if there was any news, but I'm focusing on football and staying healthy. I don't worry about anything else.

“I still have a contract and my contract does not end in winter. All will be fine.”

Robben, 32, insists he wants to keep playing at the top level for a few more years and has no idea who will replace him when he eventually retires.

“We have very good players; Kingsley [Coman] and Douglas [Costa] are very good. We have a good squad and for me the question is not the most important one. I want to continue playing football myself as long as possible. I hope to participate for some more years.” 

Despite recurring injury issues, Robben has excelled at the top level for club and country for a number of years. He is known for one deadly move in particular: darting down the right wing, cutting inside to beat at least one defender and smashing the ball into the net. Although it is predictable, it remains extremely effective, with Robben having scored six goals in 13 appearances in all competitions.

The winger, however, insists there are many dimensions to his game.

“As long as it works, it's good,” he said. “If somebody always does the same thing and it doesn't work, you have to worry. But if it works, it works.

“You have to stay surprising and you have to search for the right variety. It should not be the case that you do the same thing every time.

“We are flexible in attack and it's not the case that I'm always moving through the box to shoot. Sometimes I'm passing, sometimes I go through the line.

“As I said the surprise has to stay. It's always about making the right decision.”
