Netherlands and Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben: I can play better

Former Chelsea winger Arjen Robben insists that he has yet to reach his top form at the ongoing 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil.

Arjen Robben has been a star for the Netherlands at the 2014 World Cup finals.

The Bayern Munich winger was superb against Spain in the Oranje’s opening Group B clash against Spain scoring two goals, found the target against Australia in their next match and created their second against Chile.

The 30-year-old has been one of the most consistent players at the World Cup so far and is in great form.

The former Real Madrid star has got past the injury problems that have plagued him in the past and now looks set to play a major role in his country’s quest to win the tournament in Brazil.

There have been some suggestions that Robben is in the form of his life at the moment, but the Bayern star has played down such talks, claiming that he has played better in the past.

‘Am I in the form of my life? I wouldn't put it like that’, quotes the former Chelsea winger as saying. ‘I've gone through even better spells in the past few years... It's a nice feeling, though, to be able to leave opponents behind just like that. I'm in fine shape physically’.

Robben came into worldwide attention during his time at Chelsea, for whom he featured for three years between 2004 and 2007.

Although the Netherlands international was always a joy to watch and his tricks made opposition defenders look like schoolboys, he was plagued with injuries.

After two impressive years at Madrid, Robben joined Bayern in the summer of 2009. It is at the Allianz Arena that he has played arguably his best football, winning the Bundesliga and the DFB-Pokal three times each and the Champions League once.

Most players tend to go downhill with the passage of time; for Robben, it is just the opposite.
