We Are not Barcelona 'Part II'- Arjen Robben

Bundesliga top flight striker and Dutchman Arjen Robben says that Pep Guardiola is not trying to bring any sort of Barcelona style of play in the team.

Arjen Robben believes that German giants Bayern Munich are not trying to copy the game play and strategy that Pep Guardiola implemented in Camp Nou.

A lot of high profiles claim that the ongoing impressive form of the Bundesliga Champions league is the result of improved strategies that Barcelona adopted in recent years.

However the Dutchman believes that the Tiki-Taka style of play is merely being imitated under the coach.

"We are not Barcelona Part II. The comparison might seem logical but the focus should always be on ourselves," he told the reporters.

"We are Bayern Munich and we have different players to Barcelona. We don't have Xavi or Messi, but we have great players at the club."

The forward states that the team is adapting to the philosophy of the coach and trying to make his men according to it.

Bayern Munich are currently on the top of the German League Bundesliga with 20 points from 8 matches are also the group leaders in the Champions League.
