thumbnail Hello,

The 30-year-old lifted the trophy in 2013 and is determined to do so again this term after being knocked out in the semi-finals of last season's competition

Arjen Robben has revealed his desire to fire Bayern Munich to another Champions League title before the end of his career.

The Netherlands international netted the winner in Bayern's 2-1 final victory over Borussia Dortmund in 2012-13, only for the club to surrender their crown last term.

The Bavarians were widely tipped to become the first side to retain the trophy in its modern format, but a 5-0 aggregate defeat to Real Madrid saw Pep Guardiola's men dumped out in the semi-finals in April.

That defeat has served to spur Robben on and the Netherlands international explained how lifting the trophy for a second time remains his one burning career ambition.

"Of course I am eager to get going again. I want to achieve great things with Bayern," Robben was quoted as saying by Kicker.

"It is my goal to win the Champions League again. My biggest objective is to win it for the second time in my career.

"I hope to remain as fit as last season. I can reach last year's form again if I stay fit. And maybe I can even improve in some areas."

Robben also had words of encouragement for team-mate Holger Badstuber, who recently returned to the pitch after a lengthy spell on the sidelines due to injury.

"I am very happy for Holger that he's back in action. He deserves to be back. It's great that we're playing together again. He is a great guy and a true friend."

Badstuber played his last official game in December 2012.
