Robben focused on Bayern Munich despite Manchester City speculation
May 14, 2013 7:17 PM GMT
Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has dismissed speculation linking him with a move away from the club.
The 29-year-old has struggled to hold down a first-team place for the Bundesliga champions this season, making just 10 starts in the league, and his lack of game time has prompted speculation he may leave the club at the end of the season.
However, the Netherlands international has been an important part of their UEFA Champions League side and he insisted he was fully focused on life at the Allianz Arena rather what might happen in the future.
"I am not dealing with this speculation," he said. "There is so much speculation but I only want to deal with football."
The winger, who scored crucial goals in both legs of their UEFA Champions League semi-final against Barcelona, joined Bayern four years ago and signed a three-year extension to his contract in 2012.
His lack of appearances this season saw him linked with a move to Manchester City, but the Dutchman is concentrating on the club's upcoming UEFA Champions League final against Borussia Dortmund having already sealed the Bundesliga title.
"I still have two years on my deal so why should I leave? It is all about performance on the pitch and in the past games I have shown I can contribute here at Bayern," he added.
"There has been so much speculation in the past month and I am only focused on Bayern.
"We want to win the (UEFA Champions League) title on May 25 and that is the only thing that counts."
