Robben and Rafinha to stay at Bayern until 2019

Robben and Rafinha to stay at Bayern until 2019”

Both of their contracts had been set to expire this summer and are expected to be signed in the coming days.

There had been some speculation that the experienced attacking duo would look for new challenges for the final years of their careers, while Rafinha had been linked with a return to his native Brazil. The midfielder also scored the decisive 2-1 goal against Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final 2013. "Because both Arjen Robben as well as Rafinha play an important role in our plans for next season".

Rafinha has been at Bayern since 2009, winning the German league title six times, and has made 239 appearances since joining from rivals Schalke. "I'm really proud of that".

Friday's announcement of the appointment of Miroslav Klose as Bayern Munich's under-17 coach came as little surprise, as the club had confirmed last month that it was negotiating with the 39-year-old former striker with a view to him taking the job.

Robben had to curtail training on Thursday, after suffering a reoccurrence of an adductor injury incurred in the first leg of the Champions League semifinal to Real Madrid.

"I'm very much looking forward to the task at FC Bayern, and I'll do everything to justify the faith shown in me by the way I coach the young players", Klose said.
