Kalle wants damages

Bayern Munich's chairman has threatened to sue the Dutch Football Federation for compensation for a bad injury picked up by the German side's star winger Arjen Robben in the World Cup.
"If we don't manage to come to a just and reasonable agreement with the Dutch, we will have no other choice
but to launch legal proceedings against them and their team doctor," Karl-Heinz Rummenigge told German television.
Rummenigge said he wanted a "seven-figure" sum in compensation after Robben aggravated a torn muscle in his left thigh which he picked up helping the Dutch reach the final of the World Cup in South Africa in June and July.
Robben, 26, voted best player in the Bundesliga last season, is not expected to play again for the Bavarian giants, currently languishing mid-table after a slow start to the season, until next year.
Robben was first injured in a World Cup warm-up game on June 5 against Hungary, but remained in the Dutch squad despite tearing a muscle and eventually played in the tournament after intensive rehabilitation.
"It was unreasonable to take him" to the World Cup, Rummenigge said on Bavarian channel BR on Monday evening. "It is the fault of the Dutch and the doctor alone."
