Bayern Munich winger Robben doesn't regret turning down Man Utd

Bayern Munich winger Arjen Robben has no regrets turning down Manchester United.

Sir Alex Ferguson tried to sign Robben early in the Dutchman's career.

"No, because if you look at the prizes I won with Chelsea, that says everything you need to say," Robben told the Telegraph, when asked if he regretted spurning Ferguson's advances. "I made the right decision, to work with a great manager like Mourinho, and I made a big step there, developed myself as a player and won two leagues in three years, two League Cups and an FA Cup.

"It all worked out, you know? I am very happy with how things went and at Bayern, it is the best team, for sure, that I have played with."
