Arjen Robben claims that 'parking the bus' will not work for Chelsea when they meet Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has applauded Chelsea for their victory over Barcelona but claims that their defensive tactics will not work in the Champions League final.

Chelsea's draw at the Nou Camp was enough to secure a final spot but Robben insists that his former club will not lift the trophy against his current employers in Munich on May 19.

Robben said: "It is a dream final for everyone at Bayern Munich.

"I had a great time at Chelsea and I'm really happy they reached the final.

"I saw their semi-final against Barcelona and they did well in a defensive capacity – you could say they parked the bus in their own area. But I have to disappoint them – because they are not going to win it!"

Robben's club secured their place in the final with a victory on penalties over Real Madrid.
