Robben and Ribery bury hatchet
Bayern's Arjen Robben and Franck Ribery say that ill-feeling caused by a dispute at the Champions League final is in the past.
The pair's dressing room bust-up at half time of the team's eventual defeat to Chelsea was widely reported in the days and weeks following the match.
And rumours that Robben would leave the club began to escalate when the Dutchman was jeered while playing for the Netherlands in an exhibition match against Bayern just days after the loss at the Allianz Arena.
It is understood that Ribery was fined 50,000 Euros for his part in the spat, while both players were hauled in front of club officials for a dressing down.
But, with the new Bundesliga season edging ever nearer, the pair have declared an official end to any ill-feeling, and expressed their excitement about lining up alongside one another when the new campaign gets under way.
"Something happened and it wasn't easy. I found it a pity what happened. Up until then our relationship had been really good on and off the pitch," reflected Robben, who had been linked with a move to Inter Milan earlier in the summer.
"But now everything is once again in order. We're going in the same direction once again and I hope to enjoy playing with him again."
