Were he not plagued by injuries for most of his career, Arjen Robben would have extended the Ronaldo vs Messi rivalry into a triumvirate. His pace and direct running wreaked havoc in his first Premier League season for Chelsea in 2005, and in 2009 he was “Real Madrid’s answer to Messi, speeding along the right flank, cutting onto his left foot and firing into the far corner”. While everyone in the Allianz Arena knows exactly what he’s going to do when he receives the ball, few defenders can stop the superstar winger. In the poll among fans which ended in early June, the Dutchman repeated his achievement from last season by topping the vote by a large margin, to successfully retain the FC Bayern Player of the Season accolade. He has our vote and should have yours too. Buy the SoccerStarz FC Bayern Munchen Robben action figure and give him pride of place on your shelf.
