Bayern Munich boss Jupp Heynckes insists that he has no problem with Dutch winger Arjen Robben despite dropping him from the starting XI since the winter break.
Bayern Munich manager Jupp Heynckes has moved to quell rumours that he has fallen out with Dutch international Arjen Robben.
The winger has struggled to earn a place in Bayern's starting XI in recent weeks, with Thomas Muller preferred in an unfamiliar wide role.
Heynckes is adamant that Robben's move to the bench is purely for football reasons after the forward expressed his desire to start against Arsenal in the Champions League on Tuesday.
He told reporters: "It is normal that players are unhappy when they are on the bench and Robben is no exception.
"But I want to stress that I have no problem with this player."
Robben gave Heynckes a timely reminder of his quality last Friday as he came on to score Bayern's second in their 2-0 win at Wolfsburg.
