Bayern Munich and the KNVB (Dutch FA) are reportedly in discussions regarding a settlement over injuries sustained by Arjen Robben and Mark van Bommel while on international duty. According to De Telegraaf, KNVB president Michael van Praag has made contact with Bayern boss Karl-Heinz Rummenigge.
"After all the mudslinging from Germany, there will be a meeting between the KNVB and Bayern Munich," Van Praag said. The meeting is reportedly scheduled for Thursday.
The talks come after Robben played for the Netherlands while injured. The winger returned to Munich in August, where it was found that he had a five-centimetre thigh tear, and would miss the first half of the club season. More recently, the Dutch FA decided to play Van Bommel while injured, despite protests from Bayern. The midfield enforcer aggravated his knee injury, and is scheduled to miss 10 days.
The injuries to Robben and Van Bommel have led Bayern to threaten legal action against the KNVB in pursuit of lost wages.
