Bundesliga: That's why seals weren't in the squad

FC Bayern have taken Arjen Robben from their squad for the away game against Werder Bremen. Instead of the Dutchman, Lukas Mai went to the bank.

“Yesterday, he felt a slight tiredness and stopped training,” sports director Hasan Salihamidzic explained the Dutchman’s banking position at Sky’s request, because Robben was actually considered to have scored two goals after his strong performance against Benfica: “We agreed that he would sit on the bench for the moment.

Shortly afterwards, the German record holder announced via Twitter that the 34-year-old would not be available at all for the game on the Weser, although the Dutchman had warmed up with the team. The newspaper Bild-Zeitung had already reported on Friday after Robben’s training interruption that the offensive player was again plagued by slight knee problems.

Due to complaints in his knee, Robben had already missed the top match at Borussia Dortmund in mid-November and the guest appearance of Bayern in the Champions League at AEK Athens.
