Robben revels in UCL glory
Arjen Robben says scoring the winner in this year's Champions League final has allowed him to put past disappointments behind him.
Robben scored in the 89th minute to hand Bayern a 2-1 victory over Borussia Dortmund at Wembley on Saturday evening.
The Dutchman has twice lost European club football's biggest match, missing a penalty in last season's decider, and also tasted defeat in the 2010 World Cup final against Spain.
"You don't want the stamp of a loser," said Robben. "There was all the disappointment of last year but I personally also had the World Cup. That was three finals.
"It wasn't so much pressure. I tried to make it into positive energy. I couldn't start thinking negatively, otherwise it would be too difficult.
"Tonight I scored the goal. We did it and we can forget about the other things."
