Arjen Robben is a Dutch footballer who plays for the German Bundesliga side Bayern Munich and also for the Holland national team. While Robben has been used in a number of attacking positions throughout his career, his dribbling skills, speed and crossing ability have seen him used mainly as a winger.
As well as playing for the likes of PSV Eindhoven, Chelsea, Real Madrid and now Bayern Munich, Robben has also appeared at Euro 2004, the 2006 World Cup, Euro 2008, the 2010 World Cup and Euro 2012 for the Netherlands, winning over 70 caps for his country and scoring over 20 goals.
Robben first burst onto the scene with Groningen in the Dutch Eredivisie, winning the club's player of the year award for the 2000-2001 Eredivisie season. After an impressive couple of seasons with Groningen, Robben was signed by Dutch giants PSV. After winning the league in his first season in Eindhoven, Robben finished the season with 12 goals from 33 appearances, winning the Netherlands' Young Player of the Year award. That form didn't go unnoticed, with Chelsea just one of a number of Premier League clubs chasing the Dutch winger in summer 2004, the Blues eventually paying PSV £12million to sign the Holland international.
While injury delayed Robben's Chelsea career getting underway, the forward returned to fitness to help Chelsea win the Premier League title in his first season. Robben played another important role in Chelsea defending their Premier League crown in 2005-2006, ending his three years at the club winning two league titles, the 2007 FA Cup, and the 2005 and 2007 League Cups before signing for Real Madrid in a £25million deal.
During his two years in Madrid, Robben won the 2007-2008 La Liga title and the Supercopa de Espana in that same season, but competition for places and injuries made it hard for the Dutchman ever to really establish himself at the Bernabeu. A cut-price deal was struck with Bayern Munich to sign Robben in August 2009, and the winger has gone on to prove himself to be one of the best signings made in the German club's history.
In his first season in Munich, Bayern won the league title, Robben's fifth league title in eight years, both German cups and got to the Champions League final, where he missed a penalty in the defeat to Chelsea. The winger cemented himself in Bayern folklore in the 2012-2013 season, making up for his penalty miss two seasons before by scoring the winning goal in the 2-1 Champions League final victory against Borussia Dortmund.
