Arjen Robben relaxed over Bayern Munich future as contract runs down

Arjen Robben has said he would like clarity over his Bayern Munich future but remains calm about whatever decision is made.

Robben, 33, is in the final few months of his deal at the Allianz Arena, having made 272 appearances for Bayern in all competitions and scored 131 goals since arriving from Real Madrid in 2009.

The Netherlands international has won one Champions League trophy, six Bundesliga titles and four DFB Pokals during his time in Munich.

With the clock ticking on his career, his future at the club remains unclear, but he told kicker: "There have been no talks with the club's leadership, but I am relaxed.

"The most important thing is that I remain fit, focus on the sporting situation and win minutes. But sure, you always want clarity over your future and you want to know it as soon as possible."

The player's father and agent Hans said they have not set Bayern "a deadline" despite "other offers," adding: "We will wait. They will approach us one day."

Meanwhile, winger Kingsley Coman told the same publication that he takes inspiration from his "big brother" Franck Ribery.

This season, 21-year-old former Juve player Coman has started nine games and played in a further seven with Ribery making 10 Bundesliga appearances, seven as a starter.

They have started just one match together in the German top flight, against Frankfurt in December, and Coman said: "We get along well.

"He's French just like me, and he offers me a lot of advice. He's like a big brother.

"He's got a lot of experience, and I profit from that. We think very highly of each other. I support him with my whole heart when he plays, and the other way round.

"It's important that in a team everyone gets along well, and it works out just fine with us. We both only look at what's best for the team.

"Franck is Franck, and I am like I am. But if could be anywhere near as successful as he is, I'd be very happy indeed."
