Arjen Robben, born at home 23 January 1984, is a Dutch footballer who plays for the German Bundesliga club Bayern Munich and the Netherlands national team. 

Robben has appeared at the 2004, 2008 and 2012 UEFA European Championships, and the 2006, 2010 and 2014 FIFA World Cups. 

Though often classified as a forward, he usually plays behind the forwards as a winger. 

Robben is known for his dribbling skills, speed, crossing ability and his accurate left foot long-range shots from the right wing.

Robben first came to prominence with Groningen, for whom he was player of the year for the 2000-01 Eredivisie season. 

Two years later he signed for PSV, where he became the Netherlands' Young Player of the Year and won an Eredivisie title.

The following season Robben's signature was pursued by leading English clubs, and after protracted transfer negotiations he joined Chelsea in the 2004 close season.

Robben's Chelsea debut was delayed through injury, but upon returning to fitness he helped Chelsea bring home two consecutive Premier League titles, and was the FA Premier League Player of the Month in November 2005.

After a third season in England which was punctuated by injury, Robben moved to Spanish club Real Madrid for €35 million. 

In August 2009, Robben transferred to Bayern Munich for a fee of around €25 million, scoring two goals on his debut. 

In his first season in Munich, Bayern won the league title, Robben's fifth league title in eight years, and Robben scored the winning goal, also being Man of the Match, in the Champions League final. 

After his first season with the Bavarian club, the player was also named Footballer of the Year in Germany.
