Bayern Munich’s Dutch midfielder Arjen Robben said Friday he wants to turn the clock back and rediscover the relationship he had with team-mate Frank Ribery before last April’s bust-up between the pair.

Bayern Munich were reported to have fined French star Ribery 50,000 euros ($66,000) for the dressing room clash with Robben during half-time in their Champions League tie against Real Madrid.

“Something happened and it wasn’t easy. I found it a pity what happened,” Robben told German daily Bild during the team’s tour of China.

“Up until then our relationship had been really good on and off the pitch.

“Now everything is once again in order. We’re going in the same direction once again and I hope to enjoy playing with him again.”
