Man Utd boss Louis van Gaal confirms Arjen Robben meeting
Manchester United manager Louis van Gaal has confirmed he met Arjen Robben last night.
The Dutchman attended a Bayern Munich function at the Lowry Hotel, in Manchester, ahead of their Champions League clash with Manchester City.
Van Gaal was at pains to point out that he was there to meet Robben rather than to renew acquaintances with one of his former clubs.
He told German tabloid Bild: “I am not here to see Bayern but Arjen Robben.
“I won’t attend the banquet.”
Robben has been linked with United in the past and has done little to play down the rumours on occasion. But he has recently expressed his desire to remain at the Allianz Arena for the rest of his career.
It is highly likely that, on this occasion, Van Gaal was simply catching up with a player he knows well from his Bayern and Netherlands.
