Real Madrid GM Valdano defends selling Robben to Bayern Munich

Real Madrid general manager Jorge Valdano has defended the decision to sell Arjen Robben to Bayern Munich.

The Dutchman helped Bayern into the Champions League semifinals last week with a stunning volley against Manchester United.

"Robben? We cannot have 25 superstars," said Valdano. "He was only playing for half-an-hour when here. It was he who wanted to leave.

"We have decided to try to rejuvenate the squad."
