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.”
