Robben's sticking with Bayern, insists Rummenigge

Munich:

Bayern Munich president Karl-Heinz Rummenigge insisted on Friday that Dutch international winger Arjen Robben will stay with the Bavarian club even if they fail to qualify for the Champions League next season.

Robben has been the subject of speculation that he could move to AC Milan.

"These rumours are totally unfounded. Arjen knows exactly what this club is all about. When he was injured for six months he got to see the seriousness and quality that exists at Bayern," said Rummenigge.

"I've talked to him, this story is completely laughable and exaggerated. Arjen has no intention of leaving."

Robben expressed his bitter disappointment after Bayern's Champions League exit to Inter Milan on Tuesday by criticising his teammates, notably the defenders, with press reports linking him with a move to Milan, the team of compatriot Mark Van Bommel.

Bayern are fourth in the Bundesliga 16 points behind leaders Borussia Dortmund.
