Arjen Robben insists Bayern Munich do not fear Manchester United.
The reigning European and Bundesliga champions meet the Red Devils in the Champions League quarter-final first leg at Old Trafford on Tuesday and Robben is supremely confident.
The Dutch international believes that Pep Guardiola has helped the Bavarian behemoth become the most clinical side in European football this season and suggests they will easily get the required results over David Moyes’ United outfit.
“Bayern have no fear of United at all,” he told the Sunday Mirror.
“Guardiola has turned us into the most dominant team in Europe. We have made another giant step as a team this season.
“We are more dominant than we have been. From the very first minute we put massive pressure on our opponents and are capable of keeping the ball and putting them under pressure for the full 90 minutes.”
Robben added: “No team can have stroll to the final. We are facing Manchester United, a big name in world football. But we are razor sharp.
“Our football is phenomenal and we want to show that more than anywhere in the Champions League.
“Playing United is the sort of thing that really gets the best out of me. We won the German League last week. But we were not even bothered about that. Nobody in the dressing room was talking about it. We knew ages ago we would win the title.
“Beating every team in the Champions League is our big thing. The Champions League is what we want again, especially after winning it at Wembley last year.”
