Arjen Robben was thrilled to have shedded the tag of being a loser after scoring the winning goal for Bayern Munich in the Champions League final.

The Dutchman, who has choked on the very biggest occasions before, at the World Cup and in last year's Champions League final, netted a late, late winner for Bayern.

"You don't want the stamp of a loser," said Robben. "There was all the disappointment of last year but I personally also had the World Cup. That was three finals.

"It wasn't so much pressure. I tried to make it into positive energy. I couldn't start thinking negatively, otherwise it would be too difficult. Tonight I scored the goal. We did it and we can forget about the other things."
