Sir Alex Ferguson presents Bayern Munich hero Robben with man-of-the-match award

The winger set up the first goal before firing home the winner late on at Wembley, to ensure his side were crowned European champions

Sir Alex Ferguson presented Arjen Robben with the man-of-the-match award at Wembley following Bayern Munich’s Champions League final victory over Borussia Dortmund on Saturday.

The Dutchman’s 89th-minute strike sealed a 2-1 victory for Jupp Heynckes’ side after Ilkay Gundogan’s penalty had cancelled out Mario Mandzukic’s opener.

“It’s my first job since I retired,” Sir Alex quipped to reporters.

Robben, who also assisted Mandzukic’s close-range effort in the 60th minute, paid tribute to the retiring Scot, who ended his 26-year reign at Manchester United earlier this month.

“I think it’s such a shame a world class trainer is leaving the job,” Robben said.
