Bayern Munich coach Jupp Heynckes says Arjen Robben's frustration with his limited role at the club is understandable.

Robben came off the bench to seal Bayern's 2-0 Bundesliga win at Wolfsburg with his first goal of the season but said after Friday's game: ''I'm on the bench, it's disappointing. I can't say that I'm really happy.''

The Dutch winger added: ''When I come in I give everything for the team.''

Heynckes says ''it's quite normal for players to be disappointed when they don't play. And Arjen is a man that shows it too. But I don't have a problem with that.''

Robben is likely to be a substitute again for Tuesday's Champions League game at Arsenal despite saying, ''These are super games. I see no reason why I shouldn't play.''
