Bayern Munich will play against RB Leipzig on Saturday evening. The day before this important Bundesliga match, Arjen Robben was welcomed at his old club and that resulted in a nice response from coach Thomas Tuchel.

Robben caught up in Munich with compatriot Matthijs de Ligt and former teammate Thomas Müller. Tuchel was asked about this at the press conference. “I made an effort to let him play tomorrow,” the Bayern coach joked.
“Arjen is not the problem, but the German federation is the problem,” continued the laughing Tuchel. “Arjen must be registered from them, but he is not on the list of players. But no, every Bayern player here can learn something from Arjen. He is an example to all.”
Robben grew into a phenomenon in Munich. He won, among other things, eight national titles, four DFB-Pokal and the Champions League with the German top club. In 2013, he himself made the decisive goal in the CL final against arch-rival Borussia Dortmund. With that club, Bayern is now still in the fight for the championship.
