Arjen Robben has made it clear that he he has no intention to leave Bayern Munich any time soon as he is happy with life with the Champions League winners.

"It is football, nothing is a certainty," Robben told Bild. "This is a profession where anything can happen.

"I want to avoid any speculation, though. I am feeling very well here and I have a contract until 2015. Leaving Bayern is not an option for me at this point. There is absolutely no reason to leave, so I intend to stay put."

The Netherlands international then went on to discuss his relationship with Franck Ribery and stressed that they have left their problems of the past behind them.

"It was quite difficult after what happened last year," he admitted. "I initially thought that we could no longer play together after he slapped me. I accepted his apologies, though, and forgave him.

"It's a lot of fun to play with Franck. He understands football like no one else. We have made up this season."

Robben played a key role in Bayern's treble-win this season as he netted the winner in the 2-1 Champions League final win over Borussia Dortmund.
