Robben Hints At Shock Return To Football


Arjen Robben, former Bayern Munich and Netherlands star, has suggested that he could return to continue playing football after he announced his retirement last month.

Robben announced his decision to call it quits in July after suffering from repeated injuries during his final season with Bayern.

However, in an interview with Dutch station NPO Radio, Robben, 35, refused to rule out returning for one last time.

“Maybe in one or two months I’ll have a strange feeling that I miss the whole thing too much and will decide I have to go back,” Robben said.

“But of course it doesn’t get any easier the longer you’re retired. I do not rate the chances (of returning) very highly.”

Robben was a World Cup runner-up with the Netherlands at the 2010 World Cup and won a series of individual awards, including Dutch Sportsman of the year in 2014 and the Johan Cruyff Prize in 2003.

He made just 12 appearances in the Bundesliga last season due to injury, scoring four goals, and ended his career at Bayern with an impressive record of 309 appearances and 144 goals in all competitions.

He scored the winning goal as Bayern Munich beat Borussia Dortmund 2-1 in the final of the 2013 UEFA Champions League
