Bayern Munich star Arjen Robben wants to open a private museum in his own home to showcase his trophies and momentos once he hangs up his boots, the Dutch international said on Friday.

"When my wife and I are settled in our house, I dream of collecting all my things and building a private museum. It will be for me, my family and my close friends," Robben told Bild.

"I have so many souvenirs -- shirts of other players. I kept the ball from the 2013 Champions League final (Bayern beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 and Robben scored a late winner).

"There are boots that I have worn at European Championships and World Cups."

Robben, who played for Chelsea and Real Madrid before joining Bayern in 2009, added: "The idea is to pull everything together so that nothing is lost."
