Van Marwijk: Robben not a one-trick pony, he is like Messi

  |   Football / La Liga / FA Cup / EPL / ISL / UEFA

Former Netherlands coach Bert van Marwijk has dismissed claims Arjen Robben is a "one-trick pony" and has likened the Bayern Munich star to Barcelona ace Lionel Messi.

Robben started his career as an orthodox left winger at Groningen, but has mainly been featuring from the right in recent years, becoming renowned for his tendency to cut inside and then aim a shot towards the far top corner.

"He [Robben] can cut inside or go around someone on the outside, regardless of whether he is at full speed or stands still. He is very much like Messi in that regard. You don't see people claiming Messi is a one-trick pony," said Van Marwijk.
