MUNICH (AP) — 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."
