Robben sorry after Van Gaal outburst

Arjen Robben may have been Bayern Munich's Champions League saviour once more but he was still forced to issue an apology following the 1-0 win in the first leg of their semi-final tie against Lyon.

Robben netted the only goal at the Allianz Arena but then fell foul of coach Louis van Gaal by reacting petulantly to his late withdrawal.

The two Dutchmen had a face-to-face confrontation on the touchline as Robben ignored Van Gaal's outstretched hand.

Robben apologised and said: “I should have been more professional, but this is just part of my mentality — I always want to win.”
