ArbenRobben unveiled information concerning his injury as he said: ‘’That’s my hope. And that’s why I am proud of this team that they beat Leverkusen in the penalty shootout of the quarterfinal. I also hope that we’ll advance against Porto. Then it looks much nicer for me too. Everything runs smoothly. I am under way again. I ride the bike, will start running again soon. We’ll do it reasonable, but also work hard for my comeback. I can’t exactly when that will be.”
