Arjen Robben is going to attempt a playing comeback with his hometown club FC Groningen.
The 36-year-old – who was capped 96 times by the Netherlands – announced his retirement almost a year ago after a 19-year professional career which started in Groningen’s academy.
Robben played for PSV, Chelsea, Real Madrid and ended his career at Bayern Munich – winning trophies in the Netherlands, England, Spain and Germany – and was a runner-up at the World Cup in 2010.
He won the Champions League with Bayern in 2012/13 – scoring the winning goal – and said in a video on Groningen’s social channels on Saturday that his return would “be a tough physical challenge but I am going for It!”.
