Netherlands international Arjen Robben, who scored the winner for Bayern Munich in the Champions League final, has already set his sights on next season.

The 29-year old told reporters that he is thrilled to reunite with Europa League winners Chelsea in August's UEFA Super Cup and that he has put to bed his disappointments from the 2010 and 2012 Champions League finals.

Robben picked up the man of the match award against Borussia Dortmund at Wembley but spoke of the need to avenge his team's previous runners-up performances, including the infamous defeat to Chelsea at the Allianz Arena.

"We have more games coming - the Club World Cup, the Super Cup against Chelsea," he told reporters. "Amazing. I'm looking forward to it. I already saw on my mobile I had messages from JT [John Terry] and Lamps [Frank Lampard].

"But this is the biggest one, it is the biggest night of my life for sure without a doubt. We spoke about this final for so long, people ask me this question and I said, when I finally win this thing, I'm done on club level," Robben explained.

"It is the highest you can achieve. I've won titles in four countries now, cups, but in the end it is all about this Champions League one. Now you are in the books."

The midfielder won six trophies in three seasons at Stamford Bridge but suffered a temporary downfall in his success after moving to Real Madrid. However, Robben has made a full comeback following a trio of European finals with Bayern.

"It is sweeter after last year," the player confirmed. "Of course, I put it to sleep. That is the best thing, the nice thing about sports, football. If you are down there, you have been through these tough moments, then to come back."

The match-winner continued: "I think when you lose things, you are going through tough moments, for example the biggest one if when you lose the Champions League final at home in your own stadium for the second time.

"This was the third time in four years we had been in the final. I think if you lose this things and in the end come back and win in the end, that is sweet."
