Injured Robben Will Play Again This Season

Bayern Munich has denied suggestions that winger, Arjen Robben, would miss the rest of the season through injury.

 The Netherlands international has not played since the goalless draw at Borussia Dortmund on March 5 due to an adductor problem and reports in Germany on Friday claimed that he would not return to help a Bayern side still competing for silverware domestically and in Europe.

 However, Bayern press officer Markus Horwick said: “The reports that Arjen is out for the season are false.

 “We should assume he will play again this season.”

 Robben would have to make a swift comeback if he is to influence Bayern’s campaign over the coming weeks.

 The Pep Guardiola’s men can clinch a record fourth successive Bundesliga title with victory over Borussia Monchengladbach this weekend, while their European fate hangs – in the short-term, at least – on Tuesday’s Champions League semi-final, second leg against Atletico Madrid.
