Robben gets Bayern apology
Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge claims Arjen Robben has received an apology after he was booed by the club's fans on Tuesday.
The 28-year-old midfielder featured for the Netherlands against his Bayern team-mates in a friendly match at the Allianz Arena on Tuesday and was barracked by a section of the fans, who were still angry after his penalty miss contributed to their Champions League final defeat against Chelsea. Robben was urged by his Dutch team-mates to consider his future with the Bavarian giants, but chairman Rummenigge insisted it was only a very small minority of the crowd that booed and he claims many fans have since offered an apology. "Some fans were clearly disappointed that Arjen Robben was playing in the Holland team and not in a Bayern Munich shirt just three days after the lost Champions League final. This, however, does not give anybody the right to boo one of our players," Rummenigge said. "Arjen Robben is, like all of the players, fans and friends of Bayern Munich, disappointed and deeply hurt by the unlucky and undeserved defeat in a penalty shoot-out in the Champions League final against Chelsea. "But the style of FC Bayern and our fans is to reach out and help those who are lying on the ground, like the majority of the 33,000 fans did by chanting Arjen Robben's name. We have received lots of reaction from our fans today, who want to apologise to Arjen Robben on behalf of those who whistled."
