Bayern Munich's Arjen Robben poised to break Johan Cruyff record with league title number 11

Arjen Robben will set a new Dutch record of 11 career league titles, overtaking legendary countryman Johan Cruyff, when Bayern Munich are presented with their 27th Bundesliga crown after Saturday's final-day meeting with VfB Stuttgart.

Although unlikely to feature due to a hip problem, Robben, 34, won the first of his seven Bundesliga championships to date in 2010. The 2017/18 triumph - secured on Matchday 29 with victory in Augsburg - represents his sixth in succession.

The former Netherlands captain, who retired from international football in October 2017, also claimed the English Premier League title twice at Chelsea, La Liga with Real Madrid and the Dutch Eredivisie whilst at PSV Eindhoven.

The late Cruyff lifted nine league titles in the Netherlands - eight with Ajax and one with Feyenoord - and won La Liga with Barcelona in 1974.

"Normally I'm not a fan of statistics, but Johan Cruyff will quite rightly always be regarded as the best footballer in Dutch history," Robben told Bayern's official club website. "To overtake him for title wins is very special, so I'm very proud of that."
