Arjen Robben eyes final against ex-boss Jose Mourinho
Robben has been crucial in Bayern's run to the final
Winger Arjen Robben has targeted a Champions League final meeting with his former Chelsea manager Jose Mourinho after helping Bayern Munich beat Lyon.
Bayern saw off the French side 4-0 on aggregate to set up a final date with either Mourinho's Inter Milan or Barcelona at the Bernabeu on 22 May.
"I want to play Inter," said Robben. "I want to play against Mourinho and [Dutch colleague] Wesley Sneijder.
"It's better for us as a team. We can have more difficulties against Barca."
Bayern cruised into the final with 3-0 semi-final second-leg win at Lyon thanks to an Ivica Olic hat-trick and Robben reserved special praise for the Croatia international striker.
We simply have to congratulate this Bayern team, they were superior... It leaves the feeling of emptiness

"He's great, just unbelievable," added Robben. "He gives more than 100% every game. He just keeps running, he's so energetic and such an important player for us.
"We were much the better team today, we played a great game. We didn't sit back and wait for them to come, we played aggressively, with attacking football and didn't let them come into the game.
"I'm very proud. Very proud of the team and happy to reach the final. It's a great season."
Inter and Barca play the second leg of their semi-final at the Spanish club's Nou Camp stadium on Wednesday, with Mourinho's side leading 3-1 from the first leg.
Bayern's Dutch boss Louis van Gaal, who only took over as the club's coach last summer, agreed with Robben on their preferred final opponents.
"On my first day in charge of Bayern, I said Barcelona are the best team in the world and the example to follow," said Van Gaal, who coached the Catalan giants between 2002 and 2003. "Nine times out of 10, Barca would win but we could win one game.
