Arjen Robben extended his contract with Champions League titleholder Bayern Munich on Wednesday to 2017.

Robben's contract was to expire in June after five seasons. The Netherlands winger will stay with Bayern for another three seasons.

Robben scored the deciding goal in the 2-1 win over Borussia Dortmund in the Champions League final last season, when Bayern completed its first treble by also taking the Bundesliga and German Cup.

Bayern was on track to win all three trophies again this season and could clinch the Bundesliga title this weekend.


The 30-year-old Robben said he was having ''incredible fun'' with Bayern and was looking forward ''to many more titles.''

''We are very pleased that Arjen has extended his contract,'' Bayern chairman Karl-Heinz Rummenigge said. ''He is a great player and he's shown his importance for Bayern, not only in the Wembley final. Arjen is an important pillar of our team and will remain so in the coming years.''

Robben has 55 goals and 36 assists in 98 Bundesliga matches for Bayern.
