It is not yet over for Arjen Robben, the Dutch legend wants to return to the field. After spending weeks training, also peeking at the Bayern Munich sports center, the return to left-handed professional football is now official: at 36 Robben he returns to his origins and will try to play the 2020/21 season with Groningen, the club that launched it among the greats. “The club can use any help during this period to overcome the Covid crisis – explains Robben in a video -. I too have participated in various actions and I have also thought about what else I could have done for our sqadra. In recent weeks I have had many consultations with people within the club and perhaps I have listened to the supporters’ invocation: ‘Arjen, follow your heart!’ … A return as a Groningen player. Now is my mission. I am working on a return as a footballer. At Groningen. I still don’t know if it will work. What I know is that there will be my commitment and motivation. ” A press conference is scheduled for tomorrow to explain all the details of the operation.
